The Polish striker would prefer a move to Camp Nou this summer if he leaves Bayern
Robert Lewandowski is Barcelona's top target for next season. His 48 goals this year for Bayern Munich say he's not slowing down at 33 and he's expressed a desire for a new challenge.
The media in his native Poland report that Barça are best placed to sign him, but there is also interest from three other European clubs: Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain and Arsenal.
Barça in 'pole'
The Polish media say Lewandowski is attracted to the idea of playing at Camp Nou and living in the Catalan capital. He is a family man and has the welfare of those close to him in mind when making decisions. He is happy with the offer made by Barça, although for Bayern, if they decide to sell, would be able to get a bigger fee from other clubs.
PSG waiting on Mbappe
Lewandowski would be one of the candidates to replace Kylian Mbappe at Paris Saint-Germain, although it's still unclear what the French forward will do. The latest reports suggest he could snub Real Madrid to stay in Paris. However, as a fallback, the Ligue 1 champions are maintaining contact with Lewa's agent, Pini Zahavi, per TVP Sport.
Chelsea are also speaking with Zahavi regularly. Their interest may depend on the future of Romelu Lukaku though. Arsenal's name is also there. However, while they have the financial capacity, it's an unlikely destination, even if they manage to qualify for the Champions League at the expense of Tottenham this weekend.
On top of all that, Bayern won't make things easy, at least not until they have secured a top-level replacement. Several scenarios remain open, but Barça lead the race.
