They want Erling Haaland to be their number 9 this season, and they think he'll be great. The Dortmund star is still very hard to get. It has led to them looking at other top strikers instead. Robert Lewandowski and Mohamed Salah are two of the forwards the team is interested in. The more likely option is to sign the former.

A recent report from Sport in Spain said that Lewandowski would be interested in playing for Barcelona. Another person who has confirmed that Bayern Munich striker Fabrizio Romano wants to play in Spain is Fabrizio Romano. It's not clear if Barcelona needs the 33-year-old.
If Barcelona signs Lewandowski, there are many reasons why it might not be a good idea for them. Bayern striker's first job if he joins the team is to score goals for the team. The main reason we want to sign him is that he will score goals. Catalan club, on the other hand, doesn't seem to have a problem with that. It won't be next season, either, as current strikers keep getting better.
It's been a great year for Barcelona. It was hard for Xavi Hernandez to get things going at first. The manager has brought back the team's sense of who they are. Most of all, he has made the team better at goal. It is very likely that his team will only improve in terms of goalscoring over the next few years. Among other things, a player like Peirre-Emerick Aubameyang has been great. Ferran Torres is still working on his finishing touch.
As a bonus, there is a player like Ansu Fati in the team who could become a world-class striker with a lot of time. The youngster is going to be the team's leader soon. Injuries, on the other hand, have kept him from reaching his full potential. But he has come back and needs time to grow. Signing Lewandowski will at least partly stop that from happening.
Also, Lewandowski is already 33 and may not be able to play on the big stage for very long. He is a year older than Aubameyang, who has done very well at Barcelona. Even though the Gabonese striker isn't very good at scoring goals, he has shown that he can be counted on. So, why not count on Aubameyang for the next few years if he's still good?

As long as Barcelona wants to sign Lewandowski, they will have to pay a lot of money. If the Spanish club doesn't want to buy the Polish player, they can work on making their current strikers even better. Under Xavi, Barcelona hasn't had a problem with goals. It doesn't really matter if the club can't get Haaland because they already have Fati and Aubameyang.
