Barcelona is reported to have turned their attention towards Bayern Munich Robert Lewandowski in case their pursuit for Borussia Dortmund Erling Haaland fails.
Haaland, who has a €75m release clause, is alleged to have agreed on terms with Premier League side, Manchester City.
More so, Lewandowski contract with the Bundesliga champion ends the 2023 summer window and he is yet to sign an extension to keep him in the club after then.
Bayern Munich on their part does not want the player to leave on a free transfer and would listen to offers in case contract negotiations with the striker fail.
Despite struggling with a financial crisis, Barcelona is keen to land in an on-pitch proven striker in the summer and would not rule out the option of Lewandowski should Haaland prefers to ply his trade in England, The Trumpet, gathered.
However, Daily Mail reports that Manchester City has sealed a deal with the Norwegian Haaland ahead of the summer window.
Meanwhile, Barcelona has also penciled a list of names like Real Sociedad’s forward, Alexander Isak, Red Bull Salzburg’s striker, Karim Adeyemi, and Inter Milan’s striker, Lautaro Martinez, as resolve if they miss out on their prime targets.
