Dennis Bergkamp to Tottenham? Arsenal great could be asked join Frank de Boer at Spurs
Bergkamp is De Boer's assistant at Ajax at the moment
Surely it could never happnen.
Dennis Bergkamp, the Arsenal legend with a stature in his honour outside the Emirates Stadium could join Frank de Boer at Tottenham this summer, according to Dutch journalist Joep Schreuder.
Reports on Tuesday claimed that Spurs had contacted the 43-year-old and although the Premier League club confirmed that there has been no official approach, De Boer would consider a move to White Hart Lane.
"I'm going to think about this possibility after the last league fixture on May 3," De Boer told nos.nl. "I'm going to talk and listen.
"I would like to add something to a club, that people can say they see the hand of Frank de Boer.
"There is a beautiful example at Liverpool. That is what Brendan Rodgers is doing now [making his mark]."
Bergkamp is De Boer's assistant at Ajax, and Schreuder claims that they could link up again at White Hart Lane next summer.
"I have to laugh because I know Arsenal - the team of Bergkamp - and Tottenham are not best friends,' he told talkSPORT.
The Dennis Bergkamp statue outside the Emirates Stadium 'Jaap Stam [another assistant at Ajax], for example, is working with Frank de Boer and he's [supposed to be] going to Milan - but maybe he's coming with De Boer to England.
'Maybe also he will bring some players to England, players like Daley Blind, the son of former Ajax captain Danny Blind.
"So it's all possible."
Bergkamp made 423 appearances for the Gunners between 1995 and 2006, scoring 120 goals.
