Arsenal chiefs want to bring Dennis Bergkamp back to the club.

The Sunday Mirror says the Gunners legend, who left the club almost seven years ago, is not being ­targeted as the man to eventually ­succeed manager Arsene Wenger.

The Emirates ­hierarchy see the Dutchman as the perfect replacement for Liam Brady in the ­Arsenal academy. They want him to inspire and guide a new generation of stars after Brady retires next year.

Bergkamp is Ajax’s ­technical ­manager, working alongside first-team coach Frank de Boer and also implementing the skill and technique standards for the entire club.
