The Argentina international is edging closer to making his long-awaited debut for Barcelona after an injury-barren start to life at Camp Nou.
Sergio Aguero could be available for selection at Barcelona after the international break, according to reports in Spain.
A calf injury has kept Aguero out since the beginning of August, sidelining him for around 10 weeks. Therefore, he is yet to feature for the club since his free transfer from Manchester City in the summer.
But Diario AS claims Ronald Koeman is hopeful the striker can make an immediate return after this month’s international break, as he seeks a boost up front for the goal-dry Barcelona.

If this is the case, Aguero could make his debut in the La Liga match against Valencia on October 17 at Camp Nou.
Pedri, who missed the 2-0 defeat to Atletico Madrid at the weekend because of a quadriceps injury, could return in time to face Real Madrid a week later for the first Clasico of the season.
Martin Braithwaite, Ousmane Dembele, and Alex Balde remain sidelined until further notice.
