The coveted Poland international is high up on Bayern's wishlist and, after signing Mario Gotze from their Bundesliga rivals for 37 million euros, they appear ready to raid Dortmund once again.
According to Lewandowski's agent Cezary Kucharski, the deal will go through once the two clubs can agree on a fee for the 24-year-old, and he believes that is imminent.
"As far as we are concerned, the issue is resolved, although we have not signed anything yet," he said.
"It is up to the clubs to reach an agreement. The transfer could take just one or two weeks to go through."
Kucharski confirmed to Poland's TVN 24 television that Bayern are the club he is negotiating a move with, adding that he hopes Dortmund do not stand in Lewandowski's way.
"I hope that they keep the word they gave to Robert," he said. "He is very happy at Dortmund and has an excellent coach and great fans, but if there is an opportunity for him to play in another club, he nevertheless wants to take it.
"He is curious about playing for a new club."
Lewandowski scored in 12 consecutive matches for Dortmund this season, setting a new club record on his way to a total of 24 goals in 31 Bundesliga appearances.
He has found the back of the net 54 times in 98 appearances for the Westphalian club, whom he joined from Lech Poznan in 2010.
Out-going Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes also suggested that a move to Bavaria was imminent when he spoke after the Champions League final on Saturday.
"Heynckes knows what he is talking about," added Kucharski, who was quoted on the TVN 24 website.
