Former Arsenal striker and legend Ian Wright has suggested that the club should be looking at the opportunity to sign Thierry Henry on a permanent deal.
Thierry Henry spent eight years at Arsenal and was regarded as one of the greatest strikers to have ever played for the club. He left for Spanish club Barcelona in 2007 for around £ 16 million. Since then, he has moved to MLS side New York red Bulls, thus ruling out the possibility of a return to Arsenal at some point in the end of his career. However, out of the blue, Arsene Wenger decided to sign the legend on a loan deal from New York red Bulls.
It has proven to be extremely inspirational just as Arsenal will be losing both Gervinho and Marouane Chamakh in the months of January and February due to the African cup of nations. The arrival of Thierry Henry immediately made an impact at Arsenal after he scored the winner against Leeds united in the third round of the FA Cup. Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright has said that Thierry Henry should be signed on a permanent deal by Arsenal, as the feeding and experience of victory is something that you can not buy.
“I’d like to see Thierry come back and stay at Arsenal in the same capacity as what he will be doing now. That might be coming off the bench but I’d like to see him stay and then become an ambassador for the club or be given a coaching role so he can be there on a more consistent basis. I’d like to see him involved at a high-level so he can help the club attract great players because as good,” he said. Thierry Henry is on a two-month loan deal at Arsenal.
