Dennis Bergkamp could be in line for a return to Arsenal in a coaching role, it has been claimed.

The 42-year-old is currently Frank de Boer's assistant at Ajax, but has previously stated that he would be open to a return to north London in some capacity.

According to the Daily Star, Arsene Wenger is considering creating a position for the Arsenal legend in his coaching structure, which would no doubt represent quite a coup for the Gunners.

Bergkamp scored 123 goals in 11 years with Arsenal; winning three league titles and four FA Cups between 1995 and 2006.


Arsenal, though, have failed to pick up any silverware in the five years since the departure of Bergkamp, who has seamlessly slotted into life as a coach in his native Holland.

Arsenal have already lost out on employing one of their Invincibles after Patrick Vieira was appointed football development executive by Manchester City. But, it would appear, Wenger is not about to let another slip from his grasp.
