Bergkamp joined Arsenal from Inter Milan in June 1995 and went on to make a total of 423 appearances for the Club, scoring 120 goals. During this time he treated supporters to some of the most exhilarating and skilful moments of any Arsenal player in the Club's history.
During Bergkamp’s 11 years in north London, he played an integral part in Arsenal winning seven major honours, including the 'Invincibles’ unbeaten Premier League season of 2003/04.
The statue of Dennis will join those of Arsenal Legends Herbert Chapman, Tony Adams and Thierry Henry on the podium around Emirates Stadium.20 Feb 2014
