Wenger plots €6.5m January move & Meijer says Arsenal are favourites to secure deal – Best of AFC
What a week to be a Gooner! Fresh from crushing the old enemy 5-2 in the North London derby last Saturday, Arsene Wenger’s men saw off French opposition at the Emirates Stadium in midweek to book their spot in the last-16 of the Champions League for a remarkable 13th year running. After a relatively dismal beginning to November there appears to be signs that the squad is gelling into a genuine attacking force with Lukas Podolski, Oliver Giroud and Theo Walcott all amongst the goals in the last seven days. Concerns still linger regarding their defensive solidity and tightening up at the back over the tiresome festive period will be crucial to clawing back the four points that currently has situated out of the top four.
This week on FFC would Thierry Henry be welcomed back for a third stint at the Emirates Stadium and which Gunners star would be open to a move across North London?

Quote of the Week
“Thierry has been practising with us. Will I sign him again in January? I don’t know. I don’t rule it out. I don’t know if he would be interested. He is sharp. I had always resisted. Last year I did it because we lost Gervinho. It was a good connection. This year we lose Gervinho again as they are playing in the African Cup of Nations two years in a row, so we will be confronted with a shortage particularly if Chamakh should go. I cannot stand in his way, then we will be short.” Arsene Wenger refuses to rule out a third coming for Thierry Henry at Arsenal
