Aguero is due to leave Etihad at the end of the ongoing season when his deal with City expires.

The Premier League leaders confirmed earlier in the week the Argentine striker looks set to quit the club this summer after spending 10 years with them.

It is understood the Citizens failed to reach a deal with Aguero over an extension, opening the doors for him to leave.

With the 32-year-old's football future now up in the air, he has already been linked with a string of clubs, both in the Premier League and abroad.

Rivals Man United and Chelsea have both been reported to be monitoring the forward's situation as well as French giants, Paris Saint-Germain.

However, Metro UK reports Arsenal could also be a potential destination for the four-time EPL winner who is eyeing wages in excess of £230,000-a-week.

His past relationship with current Gunners boss Mikel Arteta when he was Pep Guardiola's assistant at Etihad is expected to play a central role in the possible transfer.

Asked if he feels the Argentina international can still play at a high level, Arteta said his former player still has a "unique quality" that sets him apart from the rest.

"For sure. Sergio has a unique quality to see spaces that nobody else can see and to score goals in a really easy way. So I am sure that he will find the right next chapter for him," Arteta said.

But when probed further if he could potentially push Arsenal hierarchy to land him, the Spaniard tactician was dodgy.

"No, no, Sergio, we will see what happens with him in the future," he added.

Aguero has enjoyed an impressive career with the blue side of Manchester, making more than 350 appearances for them during his stay.

He went on to score 275 goals, becoming the club's all-time record goal-scorer, winning 13 titles in the process.

Despite the development surrounding his future, it is understood he is only keen on a move to Barcelona that will see him link up with fellow countryman, Lionel Messi.
