According to a report from the Guardian, West Ham are keeping a close eye on how Freddie Ljungberg does whilst in temporary charge of Arsenal, and some Hammers fans took to Twitter in reaction to the speculation.

Names such as Sean Dyche, Eddie Howe and David Moyes have all been mentioned as potential successors to Pellegrini.
