Arsenal fans were treated to a wonderful glimpse of the past last January when Gunners legend Thierry Henry played for them on a two month-long loan and Arsene Wenger has hinted that the Frenchman could have a third spell at the Emirates this coming January, according to reports in BBC.
The New York Red Bulls star has been training at Arsenal's Hertfordshire grounds to maintain fitness after the end of the 2012 MLS season.
The 35 year-old had made 7 appearances for the Gunners during his loan spell, scoring 2 goals including a crucial injury time winner against Sunderland.
Wenger said on the subject of Henry's return, â€œWill I sign him again in January? I don't rule it out. I don't know if he is interested. He is sharp.â€
Henry had been called upon by Arsenal in the absence of forwards Gervinho and Marouane Chamakh, owing to their involvement in the African Cup of Nations. The forward duo could be unavailable this January too when the 2013 edition of the African Cup of Nations kicks off, leaving Wenger with a shortage of strikers which could be filled by Henry's presence.
The former French international had himself expressed a desire to return to Arsenal in January and Wenger could consider taking the former Gunners star for another loan spell. Fans would undoubtedly be delighted at his return and Wenger is hoping that his presence could inspire his side later in the season as they currently languish in 6th place in the Premier League.
