Arsenal make two-month loan offer to New York Red Bulls striker Henry

Arsenal have made a two-month offer to New York Red Bulls striker Thierry Henry.

Arsenal have made a two-month offer to New York Red Bulls striker Thierry Henry.

The Daily Mail says Arsenal have finally offered Henry a contract to return to the club on a two-month loan.

Arsene Wenger had been mulling over whether to take back the club’s all-time leading goalscorer to boost his side’s chances of finishing in the top four.

With Gervinho and Marouane Chamakh heading to the Africa Cup of Nations next month, the Arsenal manager has concluded that top scorer Robin van Persie needs help to lighten his scoring burden.

Henry could feature in seven Premier League games if he accepts the offer — as well as FA Cup ties and the first leg of Arsenal’s Champions League last-16 clash against AC Milan. But it is the Premier League where Wenger’s side need most help, with key games against Manchester United and Tottenham coming up.
