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.
