Celtic hero Henrik Larsson is hoping to complete a takeover of Wycombe Wanderers along with a host of former footballers - including Dennis Bergkamp, according to a report.

The Hoops legend has been in talks with Southend about the possibility of becoming their new manager in recent weeks.

However despite his desire to manage down south, the Celts icon could instead opt to go into ownership instead.

The Athletic claim Larsson, Bergkamp, ex-Liverpool star Dirk Kuyt and another high-profile Dutchman want to buy the club.

They have reportedly brought in Ronald Koeman as an advisor.

It has been reported that "a number of" League One clubs in England were considered by the consortium.

The same publication report that the retired players have already been in contact with Wycombe's chairman Trevor Stroud.

Plans the ex-players had in place reportedly include wiping Wanderers' debts and overhauling their academy.
