According to sports media outlet SB Nation, Ousmane Dembele is going to be fully back to the pitch at the end of this month.
What this means is that the French man's return is just in a matter of weeks. As such, there's a high possibility of him featuring in Barcelona’s upcoming game against Alaves on October 30th.

With Ousmane Dembele returning to the squad, Ronald Koeman will now have a wide array of forwards to pick from and this might give him a selection headache.

In this article, we'll be taking a look at a possible way the Dutch tactician could set up his side with the young Frenchman. Check it out below:
Dozo.ng thinks that the 4-4-2 formation would greatly favor the Frenchman.
Marc Andre Ter Stegen is Barcelona’s undisputed Number 1 goalkeeper. As such, he's going to keep his place between the sticks.

Guarding him will be the reliable pairing of Spanish youngster Eric Garcia and veteran defender, Gerard Pique in central defence.
Though Alejandro Balde has returned from injury, Jordi Alba's place in the left-back position seems secured as well as Sergino Dest's place on the right-back spot.
There's a possibility that there will be changes in the middle of the park. Sergio Busquets could be given a bench role as Frenkie De Jong will take his position, partnering with teenager sensation Pedri Gonzalez.
On the wing-back, spots will be Ousmane Dembele and Ansu Fati. These two will be charged with the responsibility of opening up spaces for the attackers.
Sergio Aguero and Memphis Depay showed a glimpse of chemistry the last time out against Valencia, as such, Ronald Koeman could pair them up front.
