Dennis Bergkamp is set to become the next Arsenal legend to be honoured with a statue outside the Emirates Stadium, reports ESPN.

There has been no official announcement from Arsenal but images of the statue have leaked onto Twitter.

The statue depicts Bergkamp controlling the ball in mid-air against Newcastle in 2003.

"We're pleased that speculation surrounding a future possible statue at Emirates Stadium is generating interest and will obviously communicate details if and when there is confirmation of any new developments," an Arsenal spokesman said.

Bergkamp, who was part of the 'Invincible' team of 2003-4, was voted second behind Henry by Arsenal fans in a poll of the club's all-time greatest players.

He is currently assistant manager at Ajax but one of the leading candidates to replace Liam Brady as Arsenal's academy director next year.
