Dennis Bergkamp is open to joining Arsenal as a coach or assistant.

The 51-year-old retired in 2006 at Arsenal and then worked with Ajax for nine years before being sacked in 2017.

Bergkamp is without a coaching job at the moment, but he told Four Four Two that he has an urge to return in a role, possibly with Arsenal.

He said, “When the time comes, I would like to return and take on a role. At the moment I am in the Netherlands. I have a young family and I am no longer a coach. But I have to admit that I feel the urge to return to the football field. Maybe it is still a bit too early, but you never know. I’ll see what comes my way.

“At the moment there is no contact at all, but let’s see what happens. Arsenal would of course be ideal: I have a very good feeling about the club.”

“I am very interested in Arteta’s work at Arsenal because he seems to really want to change the philosophy. It looks good in the games I’ve seen this year. But my future, who knows. No day in football is the same.”
