Football journalist David Ornstein claims that Freddie Ljungberg could have a “chance to impress” if Arsenal can’t decide quickly on a permanent successor to Unai Emery.

Ljungberg replaced Unai Emery last month as interim manager and oversaw his first victory at the helm as his side came from behind to win 3-1 at West Ham on Monday night.

It was a first win in 10 games for the beleaguered Arsenal as Gabriel Martinelli, Nicolas Pepe and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang all struck in quick succession after Angelo Ogbonna’s deflected effort had given the hosts the lead.

The Gunners have been linked with a host of bosses including Brendan Rodgers – who has now been ruled out of the running – Nuno Espirito Santo, Marcelino and Paulo Sousa.

Another name in the running has been Carlo Ancelotti with his sacking by Napoli on Tuesday night adding fuel to the speculation.

However, Ornstein – who works for The Athletic – claims Arsenal are ‘not seeking Ancelotti profile’ in their search for a new manager, which backs up a report in Goal that says ‘Arsenal’s priority is a younger coach’.

And Ornstein says that Ljungberg could get a chance to shine, he outlined a number of scenarios on Twitter: “Fluid/changeable but current sense: – Arsenal want situation settled asap but right man over quick decision – If No1 pick available, gets done – If available in summer, FL holds fort – If No1 pick unclear, FL holds fort + has chance to impress – #AFC not seeking Ancelotti profile.”
