English Premier League side Everton is keen on brining in former France international striker Thierry Henry on loan from the Major League Soccer side New York Red Bulls. The former Arsenal legend Henry is in England currently training with The Gunners to keep himself fit during the close season of the MLS and it is also possible that Henry might sign with a European club for at least three months with the MLS season not beginning till the end of March.
Although Henry is training with Arsenal, manager Arsene Wenger has made it clear that the player, who became a legend to the Arsenal fans during his 8 year stint at Highbury and the Emirates Stadium before leaving for European giants Barcelona, will not be given a short term contract with the side. Everton had struck a similar deal with another MLS club the Los Angeles Galaxy last season for their talismanic player Landon Donovan, who played 13 matches for The Toffees, scoring 2 times and also bagging the club’s Player of the Month Award for January.
Thierry Henry was present at the Emirates Stadium during the weekend when The Blues played Arsenal and it gave manager David Moyes the opportunity to ask the Frenchman whether he was interested in a loan move to Goodison Park. The Toffees are short of an experienced striker with only Louis Saha as a recognized goal scorer after the sale of Yakubu and Jermaine Beckford over the summer and the replacements available to Moyes are all inexperienced in the English game. Whether Thierry Henry does decide to join The Blues is, however, dependent on the number of games he will be offered but according to the manager of Everton David Moyes, there are high chances that Henry might step out onto Goodison Park in the next few days.
