You'll recall that Barca signed Sergio Aguero via a free transfer last summer and he has not been able to play due to injury.

Now that he has been given the medical green light, it's going to be very interesting to see how he would fit into the team's attack.

In this article, we'll be looking at ways Ronald Koeman could set up his attack with the Argentinian star for tonight's game. Check it out below:

Option A

In a situation whereby Ronald Koeman decides to play with 3 attackers in a 4-3-3 or 3-4-3 formation, the trio of Ansu Fati, Sergio Kun Aguero, and Memphis Depay is likely to start up front.

In this case, Sergio Aguero will keep his place as a center-forward while Memphis Depay and Ansu Fati will be charged with the responsibility of creating chances for him through the flanks.

Option B

Ronald Koeman could also explore the 4-2-3-1 formation. In this case, Sergio Aguero will be the sole striker with Yusuf Demir and Ansu Fati providing width from the wings.

In this case, the two wingers will also help in pressing and tracking back to help the defense sometimes.

Coutinho could be played just behind Aguero as an attacking midfielder.

Option C

Ronald Koeman seems to be an admirer of the 3-5-2 formation as he has used it a couple of times this season.

If he decides to use the formation against Valencia, he could make Memphis Depay form an attacking partnership with Sergio Aguero.
