The England international has been sidelined with a knee injury that has seen him miss City’s last three games.
But he is back in training and in contention to make the squad for the home game against Forest.
“Jack is coming back. He has trained well and maybe he will be ready for some minutes,” City manager Guardiola said Friday.
Mateo Kovacic is also nearing recovery from muscular injury, but Bernardo Silva is out after being withdrawn in the first half of City’s Champions League win against Red Star Belgrade on Tuesday.
“(Silva) has a little injury. It is nothing much. The clinical development is good but it could be one week, 10 days, two weeks that he will be out,” Guardiola said.
Kevin de Bruyne and John Stones are also out for City.
