Club career[edit]

Arnór Ingvi signed with Rapid Wien in the summer of 2016.[5][6]

In July 2017 he was linked with a transfer to Greek club AEK Athens.[7] Eventually on 5 July 2017 AEK Athens announced the signing of Traustason on a one-year loan deal with a purchase option of €1,000,000 for the summer of 2018.[8] On 26 October 2017 he scored his first goal for the club in 7-0 away win against Apollon Larissa for the Greek Cup. [9] He was officially set for release from the club on 4 December 2017 as his performances and work rate did not live up to the expectations of experienced Spanish manager Manolo Jimenez. [10] He made only five official performances with the club at the first part of 2017-18 season and signed a three and a half-year contract with Swedish club Malmö FF for an undisclosed fee.[11] [12]
