Eggert Magnusson has revealed that the Hammers are looking to strike a deal with Arsenal for Swedish international Freddie Ljungberg.
With Julien Faubert ruled out until 2008 after rupturing an achilles against Sigma last Tuesday the Hammers are in the market for a replacement, just weeks after signing the French winger from Bordeaux.
And according to the NOTW, Magnusson is looking to tie up a deal for a player who recently stated that he would never play for another club in the Premier League, having spent the last nine years with Arsenal.
"[Freddie] is a player we like and have been watching for several months," Magnusson is quoted as saying in today's NOTW.
"We are very confident we can finalise a deal."
Ljungberg has found himself increasingly on the fringes at The Emirates in recent months, and has also been linked with a move to Portsmouth and Fiorentina.
The deal is worth anywhere between £3-5.5million, according to today's papers.
