Dennis Bergkamp could be set for a return to Arsenal.
The 51-year old Dutchman is already a legend at the club and has a statue of him outside the Emirates to commemorate his playing achievements. He played more than 400 games for them in an eleven-year spell in North London, winning three Premier League and three FA Cup titles.
But now he could be enticed back to replace another Arsenal legend Freddie Ljungberg, in a coaching capacity under Mikel Arteta. The Swede left the club last weekend in amicable circumstances because he wishes to pursue his managerial ambitions.
Bergkamp has not worked in football since being sacked from his role working with the youth players at Ajax in December 2017. Now though Arteta could be ready to hand him a role as he continues to mould his backroom team, a move that would be highly popular with the club’s supporters.

He loves all sports but football is his abiding passion, and he still has dreams every now and then about scoring the winning goal in a Wembley Cup Final, even though his playing days are long gone. He follows most major leagues, across Europe at least, and has a favoured team in each. When he’s not watching, listening, reading or downloading podcasts about football, he spend his time worrying about his beloved Arsenal.
