Chelsea are reportedly already deep into negotiations with the player’s brother and agent Irchandley, who was seen at the club’s training ground last week.
The 19-year-old has previously been compared to former Dutch midfield maestro Frank Rijkaard and is valued at £24m.
Italian coach Antonio Conte is expected to become the new Chelsea boss for next season and Bazoer is someone the club have identified as a top target. However, it was Guus Hiddink who recommended the player.
But Guardiola is also said to be a big fan of Bazoer and could look to him as City aim to rebuild their midfield.
He will hope to persuade his fellow Dutchman to join Chelsea, but the sway of working and learning under Guardiola could be too much to turn down.
