Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has refused to speak over a potential short-term loan deal for former striker Thierry Henry, talkSPORT<7i>
The New York Red Bulls striker has been linked with a return to North London whilst the MLS is in off-season and Wenger is looking for a striker. The Arsenal boss had looked for Cologne’s Lukas Podolski, but the German side told Arsenal that they are not willing to sell. Henry could provide a short option whilst Gervinho and Maraoune Chamakh are away at the African Cup of Nations.
Henry is Arsenal’s greatest ever striker and has been immortalised in a bronze statue outside the Emirates Stadium. The Gunners struggled to a 1-1 draw with Wolves and Wenger’s chances of a Champions League spot may be slipping away. The Frenchman refused to be drawn on signing the 34 year old and said that he will inform people when the signing is sealed.
Wenger said: ‘There is no story and if we sign anybody, we will inform you. If you want to write a story, I cannot stop you. I am 15 years in England and I never told before if I signed somebody the name of who I would sign. If we sign anybody, we will inform you, I cannot tell you much more’.
