renchman Dembele has been sidelined since September after rupturing his thigh muscle on his first La Liga start against Getafe.
The 20-year-old, who joined Barcelona from Borussia Dortmund for £94million last summer, has been working his way back to full fitness and is in contention to start against Celta Vigo on Thursday (6pm).
Alternatively, manager Ernesto Valverde may not risk the youngster in the round of 16 clash and instead opt for Luis Suarez or Gerard Deulofeu with Paco Alcacer still doubtful.
Elsewhere, Samuel Umtiti (hamstring) is still out so Javier Mascherano may come in at centre-back alongside Gerard Pique while Lucas Digne, Aleix Vidal and Denis Suarez will all hope to feature if Valverde rotates ahead of the trip to Levante on Sunday.
However, Celta Vigo have a good record against Barcelona and could prompt the Catalan boss to field a strong side in the first leg of the tie to prevent an upset.
Take a look through the gallery above to see how Barcelona could line up when they take on Celta Vigo in the Copa del Rey.
