France boss Didier Deschamps has discussed the possibility of Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele being handed a recall to the national side.

The 23-year-old is back to full fitness but has not been included in the latest France squad for forthcoming internationals.

Deschamps was asked about Dembele in his news conference and said he could look to call up the Barcelona star in the future if he can regain his best form.

“Does he still have a chance? Yes, Dembélé is coming back from a major injury. We must give him time. I know what he is capable of. He had physical problems, but now it is up to him to find his full potential. This is not yet the case and it is normal.”

Dembele’s Barca team-mates Clement Lenglet and Antoine Griezmann are both in the 26-man squad. France play Finland in a friendly first up and then take on Portugal and Sweden in the Nations League.
