Mikel still has a lot of affection for Arsenal from his playing days there.‘He knows City would never dream of standing in the way of his ambitions if an attractive offer came from a top club.‘That’s not how they work, nor Pep. They want to empower people and see them get on.’If the bookmakers are to be believed, Arteta is a contender but certainly not the favourite to be the next Arsenal manager.Jose Mourinho holds the favourite’s tag currently, with the likes of Luis Enrique, Freddie Ljunberg and Massimiliano Allegri all considered as possibilities. Mikel Arteta has long been linked with the Arsenal manager job (Picture: Getty Images)Mikel Arteta would be free to leave Manchester City should Arsenal come calling in a hunt for a new manager.Gunners boss Unai Emery is under ever-increasing pressure at the Emirates as his side struggle for results, most recently losing 2-0 to Leicester on Saturday evening.That loss to the Foxes made it five matches without victory in all competitions and leaves Emery with just four wins from 12 Premier League contests this season.If the Arsenal board decide to pull the trigger and sack Emery then his fellow Spaniard, Arteta, would undoubtedly be one of the names in the running to replace him.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENTThe former Gunners midfielder, who works as assistant coach alongside Pep Guardiola at Man City, was heavily linked with the job in the summer of 2018, before Emery was appointed.Whether Arsenal would turn to Arteta to replace Emery is yet to be seen, but his current employers would not provide a stumbling block for him.‘Mikel loves working at City and learning from the best manager in the world in Pep,’ a source told the Sun.

Press Association Arsenal have not won silverware since their FA Cup triumph in 2005, while their last league title came in 2004. Goalkeeper Szczesny knows there is still a long way to go with only a third of the season completed, but feels Arsenal will win the title if they can maintain their current level of performance. “We’re in a position that we’d like to be in for as long as possible,” he said. “But it really doesn’t matter where we are now. It matters where we are in May, and if we carry on like we are now then I’m certain we’ll be top in May. “But we have a lot of work to do, a lot of tough games to win. There’s no point in putting pressure on ourselves. We just want to enjoy every single game, that’s bringing the best out of us and I don’t think that will change.” Ramsey and Mesut Ozil have been the driving forces behind Arsenal’s excellent recovery from the opening-day loss to Aston Villa. The brace at Cardiff took Ramsey’s tally to 15 goals for club and country this season, and underlined the Gunners’ title credentials on a ground where Manchester City, Manchester United and Everton have all dropped points this season. The calibre of Ramsey’s displays make him arguably the form player in the top flight this term, and Wenger believes he would be named player of the year if a vote were taken now. But the Frenchman also admits he will need to make sure he does not over-use the Wales international. He said: “He has been outstanding until now. You want always to jump into the future but we have to enjoy the present. “If he keeps playing like that, of course (he will be player of the year), but it has only been a third of the season.” He added: “I have to treat him like the other players and give him a breather when he needs it. I want him to continue to develop, but he is so young you imagine why should he stop his development now? “Let’s not forget that one year ago everyone questioned him. That shows you that he deserves credit for that – he has turned a corner and he can continue to improve.” When asked if he felt Ramsey was currently the best player in the Premier League, Szczesny added: “I don’t think there’s a need for us to make such statements, but I imagine he does pretty well at Fantasy Football! “We’re so pleased for him. He’s been through a lot, he’s come back so well and I just hope he continues. Is he the best in the league? I don’t care as long as he does the job for the team. “I’m just as amazed as everyone else. We always knew that he could play well but to score as many as he has, any striker would be delighted with that. He’s been so good.” The north London club produced their latest impressive display in beating Cardiff 3-0 on Saturday, with in-form midfielder Aaron Ramsey grabbing a brace against his boyhood club. The win moved Arsenal seven points clear at the top of the table, although Chelsea subsequently trimmed the advantage back down to four by beating Southampton on Sunday. Wojciech Szczesny believes there will be no stopping Arsenal in the Barclays Premier League title race if the Gunners can continue their current form.
