Barcelona are planning a new offer for Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski, Germany's Bild paper said on Wednesday.
Bild said that their latest attempt to land the 33-year-old Bundesliga top scorer could be tabled before the end of the week.
Barca reportedly submitted a first offer in the range of €32 million ($33.4 million) which was not considered good enough by the German champions. The Spaniards however have financial constraints owing to big debts.
Bayern bosses have insisted that they won't let Lewandowski out of his contract which runs another year.
But the Polish marksman has said he is finished with Bayern after eight years and wants "more emotions in my life", and the club leadership now appears ready to let him go if the price is right.
There have been no more public statements lately, and according to Bild Lewandowski and Bayern board member for sport Hasan Salihamidzic agreed in a reconciliatory phone call not to escalate the tensions any further.
