Fiorentina In Talks Over Arsenal Ace

Fiorentina In Talks Over Arsenal Ace

Fredrik Ljungbergs agent has confirmed that his employers are in negotiations with Italian club Fiorentina over the possible transfer of the Swedish captain.

Speculation over the once free scoring midfielder's future has long been a feature of the press in England and abroard.

Ljungberg has struggled for both fitness and form over the last 2 seasons, managing less goals in those 2 years than he did in the 04/05 season.

Freddie has fallen out of favour at Arsenal since the arrival of Alex Hleb and Tomas Rosicky. His rather large wages (reported to be £70,000 a week) is also a massive drain on Arsenal's wage budget.

Fiorentina's interest was first reported in January, but it was denied by Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, who stated that the Swede was still in his plans.

Ljungberg's agent Claes Elefalk told Swedish news agency TT: 'The two clubs are in discussions.

'If they can come to an agreement, then Fredrik can think about looking closer at a move.'

Elefalk went on to say that the winger is still happy at Arsenal: 'Fredrik is really happy at Arsenal, but if it is an option, he could also consider a move to Fiorentina.'

Yeah.. if we are in discussions it obviously means that we want to let him move.. reports about Bojinov moving the other way... but that could be rubbish.. it mite be a good deal though.

Sad to see him go, but this can only mean a younger replacement, which is the way forward.
