Dennis Bergkamp says he would like to return to Arsenal in a coaching capacity.

The Dutchman, who scored 122 goals in 425 Gunners appearances during an 11-year spell from 1995, has been out of work since being sacked as Ajax assistant in 2017.

Now, Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta is looking to appoint a new first-team coach after Freddie Ljungberg resigned from his post to pursue managerial ambitions on Saturday.

In an interview with FourFourTwo, Bergkamp has revealed a desire to get back into coaching and is hopeful of an Arsenal return.

He said: “When the time is right, I’d love to go back and get a role somewhere.

“At the moment we’re great in Holland. I’ve got a young family and have been out of coaching for a little while now.

“But I must admit, I have the urge to go on the pitch again and help, whether it’s with the technical or coaching staff.

“It might be a bit too early, but you never know. We’ll see what comes my way.

“At the moment there hasn’t been any contact about that, but as soon as I make my decision, let’s see what happens.

“Of course it would be ideal at Arsenal – I spent 11 years there and have a good feeling with the club.”

Arsenal have been linked with Brentford set-piece specialist Andreas Georgson as Arteta aims to add to his backroom staff.

Bergkamp has admitted he is ‘really interested’ in the Spaniard’s project at the Emirates.

He added: “I’m really interested in Mikel Arteta and how he’s doing at Arsenal, as there have been signs that he wants to change their philosophy.

“It looked good in the few matches I watched earlier in the year.

“But my future, who knows? In football, one day is not the same as the other.”
