The Frenchman is the all-time top scorer for the gunners and would be a welcome addition to the squad in the absence of Gervinho and Chamakh who will leave for the African Cup of Nations in January.
Per Mertesacker seems to approve of taking Henry back and has revealed that the striker is very sharp even though he now plays in the MLS.
Mertesacker said about Henry:
I am very happy to train with him. He is training very well.
He has a lot of experience and he is a great opportunity for us, but I am not the manager and I do not know what is possible, for him or for us. In training he shows his class and [it is good] to have him with us.
It is a very large claim by the Daily Mail, but if it is true I would love to see the Frenchman back at the Emirates. While he would prove to be a great temporary solution, the fact remains though that a permanent solution still needs to be found, with Mertesacker also praising Podolski. What do you guys think about the loan move? Feel free to leave a comment below.
