Following Thierry Henry's departure as under-18's coaching staff, Arsene Wenger is lining up another Arsenal legend to replace him.

Wenger told Henry that in order to continue his role with the club he must quit his punditry work with Sky, to which he refused thus exiting the North London, yet again.

It's believed that the Gunners boss is eyeing up Freddie Ljungberg to fill the void. No official offer has been made though it appears he's the favourite to the land the job alongside Kwame Ampadu.

The Swedish winger impressed Wenger during a stint with the under-15's, and feels he's the right man to lead the under-18's.

The 66-year-old Frenchman has come under scrutiny for failing to give former players positions within the club after seeing both Patrick Viera and Mikel Arteta head to Manchester CIty.

Though Ljungberg, part of Arsenal 'Invincible's', is set to rejoin the club in a coaching capacity.
