The Frenchman was considered a real front-runner to takeover at Arsenal this summer, but he appears to have fallen behind other candidates.

"If he decides to move because he has this offer, I will not say you don't have to go. We hadn't managed to do that yet so it was important to end Arsene's final game with a win", said Ramsey.

City boss Pep Guardiola has also said he would not stand in the way of Arteta becoming the next Gunners boss.

It was Arsenal's first Premier League away win this year at the end of another disappointing campaign, which forced Wenger's announcement three weeks ago that it would be his last in charge.
