The Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has not ruled out the possibility of the Arsenal legend Thierry Henry joining the club for the third spell in the January transfer window. The Frenchman is regarded as one of the greatest players for the club in the history. He left the club for the first time back in 2006 for Barcelona in the £ 16 million deal. Since then, he has joined in the MLS team New York Red Bulls. However, he joined the club on a two-month loan deal for the first time since leaving the club last season. He was highly successful and influential in helping the team finish in the top three positions last time around.
Arsenal are once again struggling to compete against the likes of Tottenham and the other teams chasing for the top four positions this season. Even though they have signed two strikers of great quality in the form of Lukas Podolski and Oliver Giroud, it is thought that Wenger would like to sign the former player in the January transfer window in the hopes of reviving the club’s poor league form. Arsenal are currently in the 10th position having won just one game in the last five matches. The 35-year-old Henry is currently training with the team in order to maintain his fitness during the off-season in MLS.
“Will I sign him again in January? I don’t rule it out. I don’t know if he is interested. He is sharp. We will lose Gervinho again as they are playing in the African Cup of Nations two years in a row, so we will be confronted with a shortage particularly if [striker] Marouane Chamakh should go. I cannot stand in his way, then we will be short. You know what Thierry gives you; he gives you hope, especially when he comes on, that is the most important thing,” said Wenger.
