Arsenal fans have responded to comments made by Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola today that did not rule out a move for the Spaniard back to the Emirates Stadium.

Having spent five seasons at Arsenal, with two of those as captain during his playing days, Arteta has been linked as a leading candidate to replace Arsene Wenger next season.

The long-serving French tactician took charge of his last Gunners match this afternoon as they won 1-0 away to Huddersfield Town, while City celebrated reaching 100 points in the Premier League.

Guardiola spoke fondly of Arteta his side’s victory at Southampton, and his words seemed to suggest he felt there was a possibility of his assistant leaving the Etihad Stadium to take up an offer from Arsenal.

The Daily Mail have linked the 36-year-old as being among the candidates and that Arsenal are leaning towards hiring a young coach for the long term.

Not every fan is happy about this latest development, but a growing number seem to think Arteta to Arsenal is a done deal now…
