Ousmane Dembele penciled out of Euro 2020 competition after hamstring surgery


Spanish club side Bacelona have announced that French international Ousmane Dembele will miss his country fixtures for the upcoming Euro 2020 after sustaining a right hamstring injury.
The young prolific striker Ousmane Dembele's injury will also put him aside from his club fixtures throughout the remaining season. It is an obvious setback for the Spanish champions that will definitely be with out another striker just last month after losing Luis Suarez to a a long-term knee injury.
In a statement released by the club management, is states "The first team player Ousmane Dembele has successfully undergone surgery ... for a ruptured tendon in his proximal hamstring in his right thigh. The Frenchman will be out for around six months,".
In the recent past, the 22-year-old French striker has suffered a couple number of hamstring problems since signing for Bacelona fromGerman club side “Borussia Dortmund” in August 2017 in a transfer deal worth up to 147 million euros ($160.5 million).
Further reports also reveled that Ousmane Dembele was close to recovering from a previous hamstring injury he sustained in November 2019 before suffering a relapse during a training session last week. He was reportedly to have missed various opening fixtures at the camp nou with a similar injury which kept him out of action for a nearly four months.
From all indication, the young striker long absence from action could force Bacelona to look into the transfer window this summer for a possible replacement. It could be possible for Bacelona to apply for permission from the RFEF to be allowed to make an emergency signing if granted.
Bacelona possible targets could be the likes of Real Sociedad forward Willian Jose, Getafe's Angel and Lucas Perez from Alaves.
So far, Ousman Dembele has made only nine appearances this 2019/2020 league season for Bacelona.
