Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola has reportedly set his sights on Tottenham star Gareth Bale and Arsenal left back Gael Clichy as the Catalan club look to strengthen their squad after seeing Real Madrid start their season with such aplomb. The Nou Camp manager is looking to the club to give him a sizeable transfer warchest and hopes that President Sandro Rosell will back him in his moves to bring in the Premier League pair.
A move for Emirates full back Clichy may be more likely now that Kieran Gibbs has proven himself capable of taking over from the French international and Guardiola may look to sign the former Cannes man in January but the hunt for White Hart Lane youngster Bale could be a far tougher nut to crack.
The Welsh international has become one of the hottest prospects in European football and a host of prospective suitors have emerged following some very impressive performances in both the domestic and Champions League campaigns.
A move for the pair would set the La Liga giants back around £55m and many sources believe that Guardiola is ready to trim his squad and offload the likes of Gabriel Milito, Thiago and Bojan to help balance the books ahead of making any new purchases.
