Arsène Wenger insists he has still not decided whether to try and sign Thierry Henry on a short-term loan in January.

The Arsenal manager admitted earlier this week that he was considering bringing the Club’s all-time record goalscorer back to Emirates Stadium.

But after further questions about the 35-year-old, Wenger said he had not come to any definitive conclusions.

“I just spoke about that because people asked me,” he said. “I said I don’t rule it out because he’s in good shape but I haven’t made up my mind yet.

“I haven’t spoken to Thierry about it. I just answered a question honestly that I have not completely decided how I will sort it out in my head.

“We are maybe looking at a striker because Gervinho is going to the Africa Cup of Nations.”

Wenger believes that short-term loans from Major League Soccer are becoming increasingly attractive for Premier League clubs.

“They become more and more popular because the players move into championships that are played through the normal year and are then available at the beginning of the year for European [leagues],” he said.

“It’s good for the European teams but I personally believe that the whole of football, all over the world, should be played from January until November.”
