After adding players like John Stones this summer to help solidify the backline, Guardiola could be targeting another high-profile defender to come in to the Etihad Stadium.

According to The Times, Guardiola and the Citizens are eyeing Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin as an option to play right back. With an aging core at the wing back positions, the City boss is looking to get younger out wide.

Similar to Stones, Bellerin certainly wouldn’t come cheap for the Citizens, with the Spanish outside back reportedly worth in the range of $50 million.
