The return of these players will surely be a big boost to the Catalan side as Barca doesn't have a lot of quality options in attack right now.
Ousmane Dembele was very influential for Barca last season contributing six goals and three assists in 30 games.
Sergio Kun Aguero has proven over the years that he's a very lethal player in front of the goal. He's going to be the perfect '9' for the Catalan side.
In this article, we'll be looking at how Ronald Koeman could set up his side when these players eventually return. Check it out below:

The introduction of these players isn't expected to affect the goalkeeping department. Marc Andre Ter Stegen has been in an incredible form lately, as such, he's expected to keep his place between the sticks.
As things stand now, it seems Koeman’s preferred central defensive partnership is the duo of Ronald Araujo and Gerard Pique.
As such, they're both expected to keep their positions with Eric Garcia and Clement Lenglet optioning on the bench.

As for the full-back spot, Jordi Alba is undoubtedly a starter in the left-back position.
Oscar Mingueza and Sergino Dest are options in the right-back position but it seems the latter is Koeman’s favorite.
The trio of Pedri Gonzalez, Frenkie De Jong, and club captain Sergio Busquets is expected to be the occupiers of the various positions in the middle of the park.
Ronald Koeman has been using Riqui Puig lately, he could also be an important option from the bench.
In the three-man attack, Sergio Aguero will surely be the center-forward while Ousmane Dembele and Memphis Depay occupy the flanks with Ansu Fati being an option from the bench.

On paper, this attacking really looks good. Ousmane Dembele and Depay will help stretch the oppositions' defense and also help create chances for the center-forward.
Here's an illustration of the possible lineup below:

If these two players get into Barcelona’s team, they should be able to perform better than they're doing now.
