Arsenal legend Dennis Bergkamp gave a series of interviews at the weekend in which he made clear his desire to one day return to the club as a part of the coaching staff.

Most Gunners would love to see that happen, but Arsenal are currently top of the Premier League at the moment and some may see that as proof that things are all fine and dandy at Emirates Stadium and the Non-flying Dutchman is not needed.

Those people are almost certainly wrong; to have Bergkamp back in the set up would be a huge boost to Arsene Wenger’s squad and despite their terrific form up to know, they are more certainly not invulnerable.

Arsenal smashed their transfer record to land Mesut Özil this summer and his arrival has been likened to that of Bergkamp’s in 1995 and the addition of a former player with the class and pedigree of ‘The Iceman’ would only be a good thing for the club’s strikers – it may even have a similar effect off field as Özil’s did on field.

The north Londoners are not the only Premier League outfit that could do with the influence of a former star around the training pitch, a bit of the old magic brought back to inspire something to aid their former teams’ current ills.

GMS though about it and came up with a few names that would be welcome back at respective former stomping grounds to help out.
