Report: Swansea turn to Dennis Bergkamp

Swansea City are reportedly weighing up a job offer for Dennis Bergkamp, who was sacked as assistant coach at Ajax earlier this week.

Dennis Bergkamp has emerged as a contender to replace Paul Clement as the next manager of Swansea City, according to a report.

The Swans are on the lookout for a new boss following the exit of Clement, who was sacked on Wednesday evening with the Welsh club bottom of the Premier League.

Louis van Gaal is understood to have been Swansea's top target, only for talks to break down at the first hurdle, while Ryan Giggs and Ronald Koeman have also ruled themselves out of the running.

Swansea's search has now seen them turn to Bergkamp, with The Express reporting that the Dutchman - previously on their radar in 2015 - ticks the right boxes.

Former Arsenal forward Bergkamp is currently out of work, having been dismissed as assistant coach at Ajax on Thursday.
