Sign him up! Song urges Wenger to make loan move for former Arsenal hero Henry
Alex Song has given his blessing to Thierry Henry”s potential move back to Arsenal and hopes manager Arsene Wenger signs him up on loan this winter.
Wenger has refused to rule out a move for Henry who remains the club”s top goalscorer after eight highly successful years with the north Londoners.
The Frenchman departed the Emirates in 2007 for Barcelona before heading to America to join the MLS with New York Red Bulls.

But he could reunite with his former team-mates on loan until the season restart in the USA, and Song is confident the former captain would be a huge success.
“When I see him training, I am teasing him: “You could still play with us, you know” But he has never replied and just smiled,’ Song told L”Equipe.
“What he achieved during his career is just amazing. He has nothing more to prove in football. Today he has the opportunity to give us a help.
“A player with such stature, such potential. He would bring us a lot.”
