Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele is reportedly set to make his return from injury in this weekend's clash with Granada in La Liga.

Ousmane Dembele could reportedly be set to return for Barcelona this weekend when they face Granada in La Liga.

The French forward, 22, picked up an injury in Barca's opening league game of the season - a 1-0 defeat away to Athletic Bilbao.

The winger was ruled out for five weeks and returned to training on Thursday, putting him on track to recover on schedule, according to Marca.

Barca have seen both captain Lionel Messi and striker Luis Suarez also struggle with injury in the early stages of the season, leaving new signing Antoine Griezmann to carry much of the goalscoring burden.

However, 16-year-old Ansu Fati has stepped up, scoring twice in three La Liga games to help plug the gap.

Dembele's return will be managed carefully to avoid the recurrence of any injury and he will likely start the game against Granada on the bench, just as Messi did in Barca's 0-0 draw with Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League.
