Ljungberg linked with Arsenal return

Former Arsenal midfielder Fredrik Ljungberg could be set for a shock return to the North London club, according to reports.The 32-year-old made more than 200 league appearances for the Gunners from 1998-2007, netting 46 goals to help the club win two Premier League titles, as well as three FA Cups.The ex-Swedish international left Highbury for London rivals West Ham United before later joining newly-formed Major League Soccer side Seattle Sounders.And in a situation similar to David Beckham, Ljungberg - who won 75 caps for his country - is being linked with a return to Europe in January in order to maintain his fitness during the MLS off-season, with a return to Arsenal for the second half of the 2009/10 campaign reportedly on the cards.The Emirates Stadium outfit have refused to comment on the speculation, with a club spokesman telling Fotbollskanalen:"We don't comment on speculation."When and if a deal will happen is something we would confirm when it happens.

However, Ljungberg's agent Claes Elefalk has confirmed that the player is currently back in London.
