Barcelona has announced that Ousmane Dembélé will be out for six months after undergoing surgery for a hamstring injury. 
Dembélé completed the medical procedure for "a ruptured tendon in his proximal hamstring in his right thigh" in Finland,  according to the club's official website.
The first team player Ousmane Dembéle has successfully undergone surgery in Turku, Finland where he was operated on by Dr. Lasse Lempainen for a ruptured tendon in his proximal hamstring in his right thigh. The Frenchman will be out for around 6 months,‘read the statement.
“The striker was continuing his recovery from the hamstring injury when he was forced to retire from a training session at the Ciutat Esportiva last week. Subsequent tests confirmed a complete rupture to the tendon in the proximal hamstring of his right leg.”
The injury means he will miss the remainder of the season along with the summer’s Euro 2020 Championships.
Dembele's injury has left Barca with only three natural forwards in talisman Lionel Messi, Antoine Griezmann and 17-year-old Ansu Fati as Luis Suarez is out until May after undergoing knee surgery.
Spanish soccer federation (RFEF) rules dictate that if a player is injured for at least five months then their club can sign a replacement outside a transfer window, as long as they are based in Spain's top two divisions or a free agent.
