Sources in Germany indicated Gundogan, 27, would be keen on a move to Barca, who are looking to recruit after the departure of Andres Iniesta.
Gundogan, 27, has become an important player in Pep Guardiola’s squad after arriving from Dortmund for £20milion in 2016.
Despite a serious injury setback, he has flourished under the Spaniard which has alerted Barca, who would have to pay in excess of £50m.
Gundogan, set to face Mexico for Germany in the World Cup on Sunday, is understood to be extremely happy at City but would still favour a move to the Nou Camp.
