Arsene Wenger is plotting a busy transfer window for Arsenal that would see Thierry Henry make a second return on loan and the arrival of two more players, potentially Crystal Palace forward Wilfried Zaha and Schalke striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, the
Wenger revealed the information in an interview on French television, refusing to either reveal the names of the two players he is most closely monitoring, or rule out a third spell at the club for former captain Henry.
The manager said: “This winter we will work very hard because we have some funds available. It could happen that we buy two players, but I cannot reveal the names. A loan [for Henry] is still a possibility, but we will still try to strengthen for the long term.”
Wenger has recently sent former assistant manager Pat Rice and chief scout Steve Rowley to watch Zaha in action for Palace, with Arsenal expected to test the waters by making a £9m bid for the England international.
Huntelaar, meanwhile, has scored in two separate games against the Gunners this season after Schalke were drawn with Arsenal in the Champions League group stage. Wenger is said to have the money from the sale of Robin van Persie available to invest in his squad.
