Henry has been training with the side since the end of the MLS season and reports suggest he will be unveiled on Monday as Arsenal’s first loan signing of the January transfer window.
Whilst many claim, that Henry, at the age of 34 would no longer cut it at Arsenal, Rodgers feels Henry’s class is permanent and that the club would be missing a trick in not signing him.
“Thierry is pretty much the same player he was at Arsenal, it’s hard to say whether he has lost his pace, but he’s certainly still a lot quicker than me! I’m convinced he will be a big plus point for Arsenal and that he’s still more than capable of playing in the Premier League.”
“Everyone at the Bulls respects Thierry as a man and as a player. He is often the difference for us in games and still the one who pops up with that decisive goal or piece of skill. He makes the game easier for me. He’s not selfish at all, he passes when I’m in a better position to score and he works for the team.”
Despite Wenger suggesting Henry is unlikely to join, it is believed a two month loan contract has been offered to the former Gunner.
