According to Sportal.se, Malmo are lining up Freddie Ljungberg to become their next head coach.
The Swedish club parted ways with Uwe Rosler last week and have apparently made contact with the 42-year-old in the hope of luring him back home.
Freddie has been holding down the head coach position at the Emirates since Unai Emery was sacked a few weeks ago but if this is true – and it’s hard to verify at this point – it looks as might be opting against being part of Mikel Arteta’s staff in favour of going solo.
Ljungberg previously coached Arsenal’s under-15s and under-23s and was assistant to Andries Jonker during a short spell with Bundesliga side Wolfsburg. He moved up to the Gunners first team in the summer.
We’d obviously be very sad to see Freddie leave the club given he only returned 18 months ago, but we can understand why he’d make that decision. He obviously backs himself. We’ll keep you updated if we hear more.
Arsenal are expected to confirm Arteta’s appointment imminently.
