Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla admits he would have loved to have been afforded the opportunity to play alongside Dennis Bergkamp for the north London club.
Bergkamp spent 11 years with the Gunners, during which time he amassed 423 appearances and scored 120 goals, before lowering the curtain on his illustrious career with the club at the end of the 2005-06 season.
The former Netherlands international won three Premier League titles with Arsenal and was a member of the famous Invincibles squad alongside the likes of Thierry Henry and Robert Pires.
All thee Arsenal legends are players idolised Cazorla, one of the club's latest stars, and he counts himself fortunate enough to have experienced what it is like to train or play with Henry and Pires.
But the ultimate dream for the Spain international would have been to feature in the same Arsenal team as Bergkamp - an ambition likely to be shared by the rest of the club's squad.
He posted during a Q&A on the official Arsenal Twitter feed: "I was lucky to play with Pires at Villarreal. I also trained with Henry and I wish I'd played with Dennis Bergkamp."
Cazorla, meanwhile, is available for selection for the weekend encounter with Norwich City, having not played for Arsenal since the north London derby victory due to injury.
