Thierry Henry could make his third Arsenal debut in their FA cup clash against Swansea next month if he completes his loan move from New York Red Bulls, the Daily Mail reports.

The Gunners are in advanced talks with the MLS club and are expected to complete a deal that will see the Arsenal legend arrive for his third spell with them from the start of January.

A deal has been agreed in principle but the one issue which hasn’t is the length of Henry’s stay, with Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger wanting to keep him till the end of the season while the New York Red Bulls want him available for the start of their season in March.

Henry is set to be the first arrival at the Emirates in January but Wenger hopes more will follow. Holland striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar and Crystal Palace starlet Wilfred Zaha have both been set as prime targets, with the latter seeming more likely to happen in the summer rather than in the upcoming window.

Another boost for the Gunners is that England international midfielder Jack Wilshere believes he is nearing full fitness again after making his return from a long term injury.

“I have got better every game. I’m maybe 90%,” Wilshere said.

“I’m not sure. Every game that goes by I feel better and better fitness-wise.”

Arsenal despite being inconsistent, are still currently in all competitions and got back to winning ways in the Premier League with a 2-0 victory over West Brom on Saturday.
