Arsene Wenger has admitted he is ready to sign Thierry Henry for a THIRD time.
Henry is set to join Wenger’s Arsenal on a short-term loan from New York Red Bulls in January, having already trained with the Gunners three times in recent days.
The now 35-year-old Frenchman, Arsenal’s 228-goal record scorer, did the same last winter after the MLS season came to an end and Wenger is hoping he can give his squad the same kind of lift he did then.
The Gunners boss confirmed he is keen on Henry – who scored twice in seven games for Arsenal last season, including a sensational FA Cup winner after coming on as sub against Leeds on his ‘debut’ – especially with out-of-favour striker Marouane Chamakh set to leave in January.
Henry has now gone with Red Bulls on a 10-day end-of-season tour, but will return to London next month to step up his training.
Wenger said: “He has been practising with us. Three times. Will I sign him again in January? I don’t know – I don’t rule it out. “I don’t know if he would be interested.
“This year we will lose Gervinho to the Africa Cup of Nations again, so we will be short – particularly if Chamakh goes.”
