Now, Spanish outlet ESPN claim Guardiola is looking to bring in both players to join the Premier League champions in a bid to defend the title next season.

Although Harry Kane is the major target of the Blues as a possible replacement for Sergio Aguero who has departed the club, the Man City manager believes they must not miss the chance to sign Grealish.

City have a wealth of options in the attack including Raheem Sterling, Riyad Mahrez and Bernardo Silva.

But Foden, who picked up the PFA Young Player of the Year award on Sunday, is seen as the main man going forward.

The 20-year-old scored 16 goals in all competitions and added 10 assists as he helped City reach their first Champions League final.

And Guardiola believes the addition of Kane and Grealish can help them go one better after losing out to Chelsea.
