If the report is to be believed, then, Guardiola is set to invest heavily in his new squad in the summer transfer window. 

Arsenal fans, understandably, won't be expecting two lose two of their first-team players to City, but the two clubs do have a history when it comes to transfers.

Double deal

Wilshere, of course, has only just returned from a long injury lay-off and Gunners fans will be desperate to see him maintain his fitness in the 2016/17 campaign. 

Sanchez, on the other hand, has had a topsy-turvy season at the Emirates, but he's still recognised as one of the club's leading players.

The report claims that City are prepared to offer as much as £80 million for both players, but it's far from certain as to whether the Gunners would be interested in offloading either player. 

One thing is for sure, Guardiola will have his eyes firmly set on City's clash against Swansea City today. 


If the Citizens secure all three points then they will be involved in next year's Champions League competition.
