Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is reportedly considering a shock move to bring Dennis Bergkamp back to the club.

Wenger is under pressure to bring in new faces to help with the coaching side of things after seeing the club make a poor start to the new season.

Defeat at Blackburn last weekend left the north London club just one point above the relegation zone and anything other than three points at home to Bolton on Saturday would only increase pressure on the Frenchman.

And while the likes of Tony Adams and Martin Keown have been linked with returns to Arsenal as possible defensive coaches in recent days, the Daily Star reports that Wenger has been urged find a role for Gunners legend Bergkamp.

The 42-year-old is currently assistant manager at Ajax, where he started his career, but is said to be open to a return to his former club.

And according to Friday's report, there is a growing feeling at Arsenal that Wenger should look to appoint Bergkamp in a similar role to one that another former Arsenal great, Patrick Vieira, has at Manchester City.

Vieira is City's football development executive and is widely acknowledged to play a key role behind the scenes at the Etihad Stadium.

Bergkamp admitted two years ago that he was open to a return to the Premier League.

"I wouldn’t rule out [working for Arsenal]," he was quoted as saying.

"I really love this club and the country.

"I want to work and train a team in England. Not as a head coach, but, instead, as a member of staff, where I could work specifically with the strikers."
