 Xavi Hernandez currently has a lot of options to build a quality three-man attack.

After a busy winter transfer window, Xavi Hernandez certainly has no shortage of options in attack. The human resource problem when parting ways with Lionel Messi, Antoine Griezmann or Sergio Aguero in turn has found a solution.

One of Xavi’s biggest dilemmas between now and the end of the season will be picking the trident for each game. Even that trio can be seen as becoming the top names in attack in big matches. Excluding the injured Ansu Fati, Xavi has 9 players fighting for 3 spots in the front line: Memphis Depay, Ousmane Dembele, Luuk de Jong, Ferran Torres, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Adama Traore, Abde Ezzalzouli, Ferran Jutgla and Gavi. 

Before Atletico Madrid last weekend, Gavi was the name chosen to stand alongside Torres and Traore. But Gavi anyway comes from a midfield position, so in the upcoming Catalan Derby against Espanyol, the attack with the appearance of the following 3 names is considered the perfect trio.

 New trio of Barca.

Xavi is considering a move with a new trio that includes recent signings Aubameyang, Torres and Traore . These are the most likely options because Depay and Fati are injured at the moment. Meanwhile, De Jong is not Xavi’s preferred option. The rest of the faces mentioned above are too young.

Xavi’s latest consideration makes fans raise question marks regarding Dembele. When watching Traore play excellently against Atletico, Barca fans began to show that they did not need the services of the star born in 1997. Dembele’s situation at the Nou Camp at this time was really awkward.

Joan Laporta is not interested in the French winger playing for the club again due to the contract extension incident. Only thing, Xavi was willing to give Dembele a chance and defended his student against criticism from NHM. However, it is almost certain that Dembele will come off the bench when the Blaugrana have a trip to Espanyol.

 Dembele was disgraced because of the appearance of many rookies on the attack.

Whether he plays or not will depend on how the game plays out, but it can be affirmed that at the present stage, the French winger is no longer an indispensable name at the Nou Camp.
