The Dutch tactician was relieved of his duties after the Catalan club's 1-0 loss to Rayo Vallecano in LaLiga on Wednesday night, a result that saw them drop to ninth in the league table.
It is understood that president Joan Laporta held an emergency meeting following the defeat, which eventually led to the conclusion that Koeman should not continue in the club's hot seat.
According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, the Blaugrana have already been in contact with former captain and midfielder Xavi Hernandez, who spent 17 years in the club's first team between 1998 and 2015, regarding the role.
He further suggested that the Al-Sadd boss wants the Barcelona job, despite having previously opted against accepting offers from his boyhood side.
The 41-year-old Spanish tactician still has two years on his contract in Qatar, where he has claimed an impressive seven trophies since his appointment as head coach in 2019.
Xavi spent the last four years of his playing days at Al-Sadd following a long and illustrious career at Barcelona, with whom he claimed 25 titles, including four UEFA Champions Leagues.
As a player, he is remembered for being one of the best modern central midfielders of his generation who also achieved incredible success on the international stage with Spain.
Xavi was an integral part of La Roja Furia's side when they won the FIFA World Cup in 2010 and the UEFA European Championship in 2008 and 2012.
