Following a protracted transfer saga, Robert Lewandowski is set to join Barcelona from Bayern Munich after the clubs reached an agreement – but how does Lewandowski compare to Barca’s current centre-forward options?

Lewandowski is widely regarded as one of the best strikers in the world and has won the European Golden Shoe in each of the last two seasons.

The 33-year-old won eight Bundesliga titles, three DFB-Pokals, the Champions League, a FIFA Club World Cup and the UEFA Super Cup during his eight-year stay at Bayern but was desperate for a new challenge away from Germany. And Barca was always his first choice.

Lewandowski has now finally got his wish, with Bayern and Barca reaching an agreement over a £42.5million fee for the Poland international.

Lewandowski has already flown out to Florida to join the rest of the Barcelona squad on their pre-season and was shown in a Twitter video doing his best David Hasselhoff impression, posing on a lifeguard station in the sunshine state.

“Finally I am here and I am very happy to join Barcelona,” he said. “The last few days were very long days but in the end the deal was done so now I am going to focus on a new chapter in my life and a new challenge.

“But I am still the guy who wants to win, not only the game but also the titles so I hope from the beginning of the season we will begin winning and go for the titles during the season and at the end of the season.”

We’ve compared Lewandowski’s 2021-22 Bundesliga stats to the corresponding league data of Memphis Depay, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Ferran Torres and Luuk de Jong.
