Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was on the verge of offering club legend Thierry Henry a two-month loan deal late Wednesday, The (London) Daily Telegraph reported, citing sources.
Wenger is reportedly eager for the Frenchman to return to help provide cover for Gervinho during the African Cup of Nations, while also easing the burden on star striker Robin van Persie.
The situation was still under consideration as of Wednesday night, sources said, and Henry's team the New York Red Bulls would have to agree on the loan deal. They were yet to have been contacted by the English Premier League club.
Henry, 34, was at the Emirates on Tuesday to see the Gunners draw 1-1 with Wolves, and was expected to train with the squad this week.
Henry won two league titles with Arsenal in eight seasons with the club, becoming their all-time top scorer with 226 goals in all competitions.
