Bergkamp joined Arsenal from Inter Milan in June 1995 and went on to make a total of 423 appearances for the Gunners, scoring 120 goals, during which time he treated Gunners supporters to some of the most exhilarating and skilful play by any Arsenal player ever.

During Bergkamp’s 11 years with the Club, he played an integral part in Arsenal winning seven major honours, including the Invincibles’ unbeaten Premier League season of 2003/04.

Dennis Bergkamp said: "First of all, I am honoured that this is going to happen. It makes me very proud. Everyone knows that I love Arsenal and that I had a fantastic time at the Club.

"For me and my family it was an important period in our lives. Next to that the people were great, the team was amazing and we had a lot of success over the years. I will do everything I can to make sure that this happens again. It will definitely be a special moment for me and every Arsenal fan out there."
