Former Arsenal and West Ham midfielder Freddie Ljungberg is set to join MLS side Seattle Sounders.

According to reports in his homeland, the former Sweden international is rumoured to have signed a two-year deal.

Seattle Sounders have announced that a press conference will take place on Tuesday afternoon where they will unveil a new star player.

Ljungberg's agent, Claes Elefalk, has landed in the US but has not confirmed that his client is with him.

He told Aftonbladet: "We have no comments to the press today. I have nothing to say more than something is going to happen soon."

The MLS clubs have a contract limit but the move will be made possible due to the 'designated player rule' that was announced when David Beckham signed for LA Galaxy.

Ljungberg made a name for himself at Arsenal who he signed for in 1998 where he gained the reputation as a goal-scoring midfielder.

He left the Gunners in 2007 and joined West Ham United, but failed to hit his previous heights at Upton Park.
