The report claims that Guardiola is a big admirer of the England international after impressing with his displays this past season for the European champions.

It is believed the Citizens coach is aware of the 22-year-old's versatility, which allows him to feature at centre back as well as a midfielder.

Despite the reported interest, the Athletic report that the Blues have no plans to offload James, who still has four years left on current deal in London.
