Arsenal legend Freddie Ljungberg is excited by the potential of the current team.

Currently without a club after leaving Japanese side Shimizu S-Pulse during the winter, the midfielder has kept tabs on the team he represented 313 times.

"Arsenal is a big part of my life," Ljungberg told Arsenal.com. "I'm there quite often and live in London, so it's important to me.

"I still keep in touch with my old team-mates, too. We're all great friends, and I actually saw Jens Lehmann down in Munich recently. Most of us still talk a lot to each other.

"I enjoy watching the current team - it's a young side and will hopefully get better and better. With the addition of one or two good signings, things look bright."
