Mikel Arteta is still the number one candidate to succeed Arsene Wenger, as Arsenal executives sit down with the Spaniard today to discuss his appointment.
Wenger took charge of his last game at Huddersfield on Sunday as the curtain came down on a 22-year spell at the helm.
The 36-year-old played a key role in City's record-breaking Premier League title-winning campaign but Guardiola is understood to empathise with Arteta's desire to advance his career.
However, Sportsmail is reporting that Arsenal chiefs will speak to a former club star striker before they make any official decisions or announcements. He knows what is important at the club and he was captain.
The Frenchman said:"I left a lot of experience behind me, people who were with me like Steve Bould who has six years' experience, and Jens Lehmann too".

"I think a lack of respect was shown to Alexandre Lacazette by dropping him for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, but they have proved they are better together".
Boro Primorac, a long-term coach and friend of Wenger, was always likely to leave and, as the outgoing manager prepares to clear his office later this week, a number of other backroom staff have also been relieved of their duties.
According to reports, the Gunners board are now slowly pushing for Arteta and the former Everton midfielder could soon be unveiled as the new boss before the start of World Cup.
"I don't want to influence it publicly, because I believe it's important they make their choice objectively and after that I will support him".
However, Wenger is very aware that he can not be seen as influencing Arsenal's decision and stressed that he will back whoever the club decide to appoint.
