The French worldwide joined the club just weeks ago from Borussia Dortmund and had shown some flashes in a couple starts, but now Barca must figure out what to do without the player.

The player was viewed as a direct replacement for Brazilian forward Neymar who joined PSG for €222 million, leaving a sizable gap in Barcelona's forward line.

The 20-year-old is now set to miss the rest of Barca's Champions League group campaign and faces a race against time to take part in the first Clasico of the season against Real Madrid on December 23.
