Arsenal fans are giving their seal of approval to the latest reports from The Telegraph about a potential replacement for under-fire manager Unai Emery.
According to the outlet, the most likely scenario should the Basque-born manager get sacked is Freddie Ljungberg taking over on an interim basis with Steve Bould potentially assisting him.
Should Arsenal have appointed Jose Mourinho?
Ljungberg was only promoted to the first-team coaching staff in the summer after his successful stint with the club’s under-23 side.
He has been praised by youngster Bukayo Saka for helping him develop as a player with the 18-year-old revealing he goes to the Swede for advice at times (via The Guardian).
Links with the Arsenal job come after less than assured performances under Emery with the club having gone six games without a win across all competitions, their longest such run since 1998 (via BBC).
Fans were giving their approval over the possible appointment of Ljungberg as they took to Twitter to react.
Here is a selection of tweets from the north London faithful:
I want that @freddie in

It would be great if freddie became our new coach and arteta became his assistant or the otherwise

What exactly are they waiting for? If he’s on his last legs they may as well just sack him. If he’s not the man to take us forward, surely it’s better to let Ljungberg take over for a few games rather than carry on with someone you’re inevitably going to sack anyway

I’ll take gunnersauras at this rate mate, I just want him gone. I’d be happy with Poch, Arteta, Allegri or ljungberg. In that order and all for different reasons
