First Arsenal signing to be revealed Monday

Henry will be unveiled on MondayArsenal will reveal their first signing on January 2nd sources have revealed with the player not new to the surroundings of the Emirates.

Thierry Henry, after what has been a slightly awkward transaction is set to pen a two month deal with Wenger’s side. The Frenchman is seen as a legend at the club and will be welcomed back as cover in the forward role.

Although some do question the period when Henry shall return to America, leaving Arsenal with only Robin van Persie once more, it is believed his re-introduction to the Arsenal side shall only be beneficial for a club that are chasing a Champions League spot with Chelsea and Liverpool.

The deal between the MLS and Arsenal was, we have been informed, slightly tricky due to “insurance requirements” – normally something that would be in small print but important nonetheless – and with the 34 old set to be shown once again in an Arsenal shirt, the feeling around the Emirates stadium will no doubt be full of joy.

Henry has been playing in the United States for New York Redbulls since 2010 where he has knocked in 16 league goals in 37 league appearances.

    It’s not an insurance issue with the MLS but an “assurance” issue which looks like it has been dealt with.

    What a welcome development but we still a podolski kind of striker

  7. Nico December 29, 2011 at 1:52 PM

    Wenger already told the media that he won’t sign podolski, so stop dreaming one more time…

    Forget about henry, arsne needs to look at fresh signings
    and also sell arshavin, Rosiky, Chamrak,

    Plus what on earth is Diably all about, spends more time on the treatment table
    rather than on the pitch. Sorry lads, but after the result against wolves, top four
    place looks remote.

    mr. wenger get pato and podolski and a midfielder…… we need some creativy for the forward line…. wenger dont let arsenal drop out of the CPL…. some of the players that we have can not change a game when they come even if they were playing college league……. chamak, arshavin, jenkinson, rosicky, diaby, these players dont and never possessed the quality of a gooner. hopeless, get rid of them… they r getting paid for nothing really…… my money which i save to purchase my home and away kit. i fly to london at time to c a match…. mr wenger i along with a host of gooners are not being appreciated by the club with these sorry excuse for players….. i must say i have never felt this way about arsenal b4 and its a pitty cause we have cahs to purchase real game changers and instead we hoard the money for WHO??????????????????
