Arsene Wenger believes Thierry Henry could give Arsenal the same short-term boost provided by Sol Campbell when he returned to the club for a second spell in 2010.
The Arsenal manager has confirmed Henry, the club's all-time record scorer, will sign for the Gunners on a two-month loan deal if insurance agreements can be agreed with current club the New York Red Bulls. And he hopes the deal will prove as successful as Campbell's 11-match stint two years ago when he filled a defensive void.
Wenger said: "Sol was fantastic when he came back. Sol is like Thierry. Once they are committed you know you can rely on them."
