Although Pochettino has previouslydismissed the possibility of ever managing Tottenham’s bitter rivals, the speculation continues to intensify.

And Seaman, who won two Premier League titles for the Gunners, believes getting Pochettino would be the best move for the club.

The Swede has been placed in caretaker charge after Unai Emery was sacked on Friday and he saw two goals from captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang ensure Arsenal battled back to earn a point against the Canaries.

It did little for their hopes of securing Champions League qualification this season, but the former midfielder and under-23s boss is optimistic.

Asked if the top four was still achievable, Ljungberg said: “Yes, 100 per cent. Like you have seen, people drop points here and there and we drop points and it is a bit of a crazy league at the moment.

“Of course I hope and think that Arsenal can get back into the top four.”
