Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman has revealed that he has been "very happy" with Ousmane Dembele's recent training performances.
Koeman is believed to have ordered the France international to undergo extra sessions during the international break in order to prove his fitness as he battles back from another long-term hamstring issue.
Dembele has only played 20 minutes of La Liga football this season, but Koeman has suggested that the 23-year-old is in his plans moving forward, having been impressed by the attacker's training sessions.
"Dembele has a lot of quality, and little by little he will be physically well," Koeman told reporters. "Those who have not played many games have trained. And he has been one of them. I am very happy with his training."
The Frenchman has scored 19 times and contributed 16 assists in 75 outings for Barca.
