Pep Guardiola is continuing with his revamp of his Manchester City squad and will reportedly spend £110 million (R1.8 billion) on his next four targets.

Tired of reading? Click through the mini-gallery above to see Guardiola's reported four targets.

The Spaniard recently signed off on the release of three fullbacks, namely Bacary Sagna, Pablo Zabaleta and Gael Clichy.

As a consequence, City are now in the market for replacements, and Guardiola is reportedly keen to spend £110 million on fullbacks, according to the Daily Star.

The City boss is apparently chasing Kyle Walker and Dani Alves for the right-back position.

Spurs are reportedly want £50 million (R820 million) for Walker, but City hope are said to be hoping they can sign him for £40 million (R656 million), with a compromise of £45 million (R738 million) to be discussed.

Alves, meanwhile, could join the Citizens on a free deal after Juventus announced last week that they had terminated his contract by mutual consent.

Guardiola is apparently also eyeing two left backs, with AS Monaco's Benjamin Mendy and Southampton's Ryan Bertrand linked closest.

While Mendy would reportedly cost £40 million (R656 million), Bertrand could arrive for £25 million (R410 million).
