Arsenal ready to pull the plug on Ljungberg after two games
The Gunners are reportedly already losing confidence in their interim boss amid fears Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang could be eyeing the Emirates exit door.
Arsenal appear to be spiralling into a deeper mess as the days pass.
Just over a week on from sacking Unai Emery, the Gunners now reportedly have doubts over how long Freddie Ljungberg should be left in charge.
Misjudging the situation could have serious ramifications for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's future.
Ljungberg's Arsenal reign could be a short one
Arsenal fear interim boss Ljungberg's lack of managerial experience will force them to make a full-time appointment before the end of the season.
Gunners chiefs seemed set to back the Swede when Emery was moved aside but a draw with Norwich City at Carrow Road and the 2-1 loss to Brighton and Hove Albion in midweek have cast doubt over his capabilities.
Action could be taken sooner rather than later as the club mull over a list of potential targets, particularly as there are "growing concerns" about star striker Aubameyang .
The 30-year-old has reportedly stalled on contract talks and the lack of clarity over the head coaching position could end with Arsenal being forced to sell one of their strongest assets.
