The Poland international is said to have turned down offers from the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City in order to leave the Allianz Arena for the Nou Camp.
Lewandowski has been one of the finest players in world football in recent years, and has been hugely unfortunate to pick up a Ballon d’Or for his troubles, though perhaps he still has a chance of one in the future.
Reliable Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano has now weighed in on the speculations, stating the Catalan giants are indeed in contact with Lewandowski’s agent Pini Zahavi ahead of a potential deal in the summer.

Blaugrana manager Xavi turns out to be a big admirer of the 33-year-old and believes he can be as impactful as club icon Lionel Messi, who shockingly left the club last summer.
Lewandowski is also open to moving to Camp Nou, and he has already started enquiring the players to know about life in Barca.
Romano also adds that the former Dortmund man has demanded Blaugrana a three-year contract.

In total, the pair Aubameyang-Lewandowski has converted 819 in the worldwide football: 523 of Lewy, and 296 of Auba.
The Bayern Munich striker netted 46 goals in 40 matches in the 2021-22 season, similar to what only Leo Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have done in their best years.
Auba, by his part, has equalised Memphis Depay as Barca’s top scorer with 10 goles in 14 matches.
