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.'

I always find it mildly funny when a spud fan writes the word s h i t, I dunno why! :)
11/07/2007 00:35:00
could it be the fact that not so long ago they rechristened Wet spams ground upton parp Iceman?
11/07/2007 00:43:00
Sad to see him leave but it is time. :(
11/07/2007 00:44:00
I think that might be the reason niko!? Maybe its because Lennon got the s h i t s before last years semi final at our place? Im undecided.

Can't wait for the excuses this season, what'll it be? chickenpox? bird flu? thats worthy of a poll "what will stricken the fricken chicken?"
11/07/2007 01:30:00
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.
11/07/2007 03:54:00
Sad to see him go, but this can only mean a younger replacement, which is the way forward.
11/07/2007 06:37:00
ciao Fredski. One of the better players. Wont dislike you at all if you go.
