Bergkamp is already cemented in Arsenal memory following his 120 goals in 423 appearances in an 11-year spell with the club.

The Gunners announced plans to commemorate the Dutchman's contribution to the club last year and have revealed the statue is now completed.

The 44-year-old, currently working as a coach at Ajax Amsterdam, will be a guest of honour at the unveiling of the statue on February 22 - ahead of Arsenal's Premier League clash with Sunderland.

Bergkamp's statue will be located above the Armoury store outside the Emirates, and will join existing ones of Herbert Chapman, Tony Adams, and Thierry Henry.
