Arnold Jan Bruggink (Dutch pronunciation: ) (born 24 July 1977 in Almelo, Overijssel) is a former Dutch footballer who played as an attacking midfielder.

He won the Dutch Talent of the Year award in 2000 while playing for PSV Eindhoven and won three league titles and two Supercups with the club, as well as appearing in the UEFA Champions League. He had moved to PSV from FC Twente, where he had been the club's leading goalscorer in the 1995–96 season.

After six seasons in Eindhoven, he moved to Spanish club RCD Mallorca in 2003, where he played in the UEFA Cup but he moved back to his homeland after just one season. He joined SC Heerenveen and spent two seasons playing for them in the Eredivisie and in two successive UEFA Cup campaigns, before again heading abroad when he joined German side Hannover 96 in 2006. He left the club after his contract was not renewed at the end of the 2009–10 season.

Bruggink made two appearances for the Dutch national team in 2000, a 2002 World Cup qualifier against the Republic of Ireland on 2 September and a friendly against Spain on November 15.

Bruggink currently works as a pundit and color commentator for several TV stations in the Netherlands and Germany.
