Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele suffered a sprained right ankle in his team's win over Real Sociedad on Sunday.

Dembele, 21, came off early in the second half at Camp Nou after picking up an injury following a tackle from Raul Navas.

The La Liga champions confirmed the France international had suffered the injury in the season's final league game. 

"The first team player Ousmane Dembele has a sprained right ankle," a club statement read.

"In the next few days he will continue under the supervision of the club's medical staff."

The injury is a slight worry for France less than a month out from the World Cup in Russia.

Dembele is part of Didier Deschamps' squad, who begin their tournament with a clash against Australia on June 16.
