Dennis Bergkamp is set to become the fourth Arsenal legend to receive his own statue outside Emirates Stadium. Originally a rumor, the word seems to be out now after pictures on twitter surfaced of the sculpture.

As you can see, the statue is based on the classic image of him controlling the ball in the air against Newcastle in 2003.

Bergkamp’s statue is rumored to be unveiled outside Emirates Stadium before the start of the 2013-14 Premier League season, joining the statues of other all-time Gunners Thierry Henry, Tony Adams and Herbert Chapman.

Bergkamp scored 120 goals in 423 games for the Gunners, winning three Premier League titles and four FA Cups.
