Three Lions left-back Chilwell, 22, is expected to smash the £50m barrier after signing a new contract at Leicester.

And Wan-Bissaka, 21, has seen his value soar to £30m after a stunning 12 months in the Prem with Crystal Palace.

Guardiola spent more than £100m on full-backs two seasons ago when he bought Benjamin Mendy and Kyle Walker.

But Mendy’s fitness issues has limited him to just nine league starts this season, with Chilwell seen as a successor.

And it is believed right-back Wan-Bissaka can compete for a place in Guardiola’s first team.

The Etihad chief is expected to look at foreign options as a long-term replacement for Fernandinho.

Yet at full-back the England starlets can boost his squad as he has just four ‘home’ players within his Premier League list at the moment.

Clubs are allowed to name only 17 non-homegrown players in their 25-man squad.

City also have Gabriel Jesus among their Under-21 list and he turns 22 in April.
