Dennis Bergkamp is to become the next Arsenal legend to be immortalised outside the Emirates Stadium later this year with a statue.

Images of the statue have emerged on Twitter, with the pose taken from him controlling the ball in mid-air against Newcastle in 2003.

Statues of Thierry Henry, Tony Adams and Herbert Chapman were also erected outside the stadium in December 2011.

Bergkamp, who was part of the 'Invincble' 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.

Arsenal hope to unveil the statue, with Bergkamp in attendance, before the start of the 2013-14 season.

"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," said an Arsenal spokesman.
