Arsenal title-winning star Freddie Ljungberg is in search of a new club after leaving Shimizu S-Pulse in Japan.

 

The former Gunners favourite had spent only six months with the J-League side before terminating his contract, making himself a free agent.

 

Arsene Wenger originally brought the Swede to the Premier League, but his representative claimed Ljungberg turned down moves back to England in the transfer window.

 

“It was not the right English clubs. French and Scandinavian clubs also showed interest," Walid Bouzid told talkSPORT.

 

“He wants to play in a club battling for league titles, but he also wants his final project to give him a chance to give something back to society.”

 

The 34-year-old made his name in north London with Arsenal, where he won two league titles and three FA Cup titles under Wenger.

 

He was a cult figure for Arsenal fans at Highbury and was known for his late runs into the box and exceptional finishing ability.

 

After leaving the Gunners in 2007 he joined West Ham United and his career then took in places such as Seattle Sounders in the MLS and Celtic in the SPL.

 

Ljungberg represented Sweden on 75 occasions and even captained them for some of his latter days with them.
