    The sentence is perfectly grammatical.

    It does sounds a little strange — but not because of the grammar.
    It would be unusual to refer to a person as 'someone's friend' — but not impossible. For example:

    We need four horses for the carnival procession. Can the club members provide them?
    None of the members can help, but someone's friend has four horses.

    PS
    When I say

    It would be unusual to refer to a person as 'someone's friend'

    I mean that it would be unusual to use the expression at the start of a clause as the SUBJECT.
    It would not be at all unusual to use it elsewhere in the clause. For example:

    He's someone's friend.
    Give it to someone's friend.
    We could allow someone's friend to do it.
