Meanwhile, Bergkamp would oversee the academy after holding roles within the Ajax youth system since retiring.

Jansen also confirmed the involvement of Netherlands boss Ronald Koeman.

He told the KieftJansenEgmondGijp podcast: “We are in the process of buying a club in England. I’m not allowed to say which club yet.

“I can say which group we will do it with. Ronald Koeman, Dennis Bergkamp, ​​Henrik Larsson and Dirk Kuyt.

“We are now looking at League Two or League One. We do this with some people around us and we also have the financiers. It doesn’t have to be in London.

“The plan is to manage the football club in the broadest sense of the word. So, the way we think it should be. Training, hospitality, merchandising, marketing, everything. We have a group, and maybe one or two more will join.

Liverpool legend Dirk Kuyt ‘close to buying League One club’ that could be Bolton, according to sensational reports on Dutch TV

“The names I mention will also do a certain job within the club. Henrik Larsson would like to become a head coach. Bergkamp will set up the academy. And Koeman also comes over to do his things.”

Larsson has managerial experience in his native Sweden, including two spells at former club Helsingborgs.

His last coaching role came under Koeman at Barcelona between 2020 and 2021.

As for Koeman, he began a second tenure as Netherlands boss last year and is currently contracted until 2026.

Ex-Liverpool forward Kuyt is also a manager, having taken over second tier Belgian side Beerschot in December.

Back in 2019, though, he was linked with a surprise move to buy Bolton, although a takeover never materialised.
