The 23-year-old forward is only a matter of weeks into a new challenge opened in Italian football.
He signed a four-year contract with Genoa over the summer after securing a switch from Cracovia.
Piatek has opened the 2018-19 campaign in impressive style, netting eight times in just four appearances to date.
Those exploits are reported to have sparked interest from Camp Nou, with Barca monitoring the progress of a man drawing comparisons to an illustrious countryman at Bayern Munich.
Piatek has “heard” of the speculation, but is reluctant to talk himself up or a potential big-money move to Catalunya.
“I can’t be compared to Lewandowski - he plays for Bayern Munich, myself at Genoa.
“I don’t think the links with Barcelona are true, even though I’ve heard about it…
“If I have any secrets, it’s simply that I try to improve, giving my best in training. With the coach Ballardini, we’ve agreed what my position on the field is. I know exactly what I have to do.
“I asked [Dawid] Kownacki, [Bartosz] Bereszynski and [Karol] Linetty for information before I came here. I already knew it would be a fantastic move for me.”
Piatek enjoyed a prolific 2017-18 campaign for Cracovia, netting 21 times, and departed the club having found the target on 32 occasions in 65 appearances.
He has, however, returned to the fold during the current campaign, with a senior debut made during a 1-1 draw with the Republic of Ireland during the recent international break.
