According to The Guardian, the 42-year-old is determined to prove he should succeed Unai Emery at Arsenal on a full-time basis. Carlo Ancelotti, Massimiliano Allegri and Mauricio Pochettino are among the many coaches who have been linked with the role, although club chiefs are reportedly prepared to let Ljungberg stay on for the remainder of the season.
