Arsenal legend Thierry Henry is being linked with a shock return to Europe, with his former club among those interested in signing the player.

The 37-year-old is also attracting interest from Paris Saint-Germain and AS Monaco in his homeland, according to reports in the Daily Mail, and could move in January after his contract expires with the New York Red Bulls.

Henry has been in Major League Soccer since 2010, moving to the Big Apple after a three-year spell with Barcelona. He has won the Supporters' Shield and the Eastern Conference whilst in America, but never the MLS Cup.

That will be a blemish on the record if he does leave the US at the end of the year, although his impact on soccer in New York can't be under-estimated after four years of service.

Loan return

In that time, he did return to Arsenal on loan, scoring twice for Arsene Wenger back in 2012. The paper report claims the Frenchman could return to join his compatriot once again in north London.

The Gunners first signed Henry back in 1999, and during an eight-year spell he became the club's record goalscorer, won two Premier League titles, three FA Cups and also reached a Champions League final.

In his second spell at the Emirates Stadium, he notched an FA Cup winner for Arsenal to cement his legendary status, whilst his all-round player suggested he might still be able to offer something at the top level.

Still got it?

Whether that remains the case two years on remains to be seen, but the Gunners remain short of attacking options with Danny Welbeck and the injured Olivier Giroud the main options. Yaya Sanogo is yet to prove himself, whilst Joel Campbell appears out of favour with management.

PSG have no such problems when it comes to attacking options, but appear interested after comments from Gerard Houlier, global head of football for New York.

"Does he have the level to play in Ligue 1? Yes, no problem. So far no decision has been made, either in one direction or the other. Thierry has not decided to end his career," he said, according to the report.

AS Monaco return

Arsenal aren't the only former club on the player's radar however, with AS Monaco - the club where it all began for Henry - also keen. He won a domestic title there back in 1997.
