Unai Emery has been sacked as Arsenal manager after 18 months in charge.
The Spaniard, who previously led Paris St-Germain to the French league title and won three Europa Leagues with Sevilla, was appointed Gunners boss in May 2018, succeeding Arsene Wenger.
Arsenal said the decision had been "taken due to results and performances not being at the level required".
The Gunners have not won in seven games and lost 2-1 at home to Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League on Thursday.
They are without a Premier League victory since 6 October and eight points off the top four.
In a statement, Arsenal added: "We have full confidence in Freddie to take us forward.
"The search for a new head coach is under way and we will make a further announcement when that process is complete."
He is to be replaced on a temporary basis by assistant and former Arsenal midfielder Freddie Ljungberg.
They finished fifth in 48-year-old Emery's first season in charge at Emirates Stadium after he replaced Wenger.
The Gunners started this season with back-to-back victories against Newcastle and Burnley, but that run ended with defeat by Liverpool, before draws with north London rivals Tottenham and Watford followed.
