It is being reported this morning that Arsene Wenger is intending to kick off the Jnuary transfer window in style by announcing the signing of Thierry Henry for the THIRD time in his career.
The Mail says that Arsenal already have the agreement of Henry’s bosses at the New York Red Bulls, and the ongoing talks are only about the length of the loan, with Wenger asking to keep Henry for longer than last years stay, maybe even until the end of the season….
Last year Henry made his debut in Arsenal’s FA Cup Third Round tie against Leeds United and it appears that Wenger wants the Arsenal legend to start again in the same game, although this year’s opponents are the Premiership surprise team Swansea, who beat Arsenal just last week in the League.
Against Leeds, Henry only replaced Marouane Chamakh in the 68th minute with the score at 0-0, but within ten minutes he had a fairytale start by scoring the winning goal of the game. Can he have the same effect again this time around?
