Arsenal legend Wright: Wenger should consider permanent Henry deal

Arsenal legend Ian Wright hopes fans do not expect too much from Thierry Henry.

Wright wrote in The Sun: "I'm pleased Thierry Henry is returning to Arsenal and I really hope he is a massive success.

"Had I been given the opportunity, I'd also have jumped at the chance of a second spell with the Gunners.

"But I have a couple of problems with this deal.

"The first is that I don't like the fact it's only a two-month loan - it seems a bit weird.

"It will be incredibly frustrating if Henry does brilliantly for Arsenal and then, at the start of March, he goes back to the United States and plays for New York Red Bulls again.

"He could blitz Spurs in his final game at the end of February then everyone would be on a downer if he left. Arsenal and boss Arsene Wenger would be back to square one.

"So for this reason, Wenger should try to make his move permanent if he does superbly."
