Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has heaped praise on France striker Loic Remy, claiming he reminds him of Thierry Henry.

Remy's form for Marseille since his move to the club in 2010 now sees him as a regular member of Laurent Blanc's France side and appears is a strong contender to play in net summer's European Championships.

Such has been the 24-year-old emergence that Wenger believes he can improve to a level which former Arsenal legend Henry reached.


"Remy improves all the time," Wenger said. "Reminds me of a young Thierry: his runs and the speed at which he plays"

Henry established himself as an Arsenal great during his eight-year career in north London, becoming the club's record goalscorer, surpassing Ian Wright.

Away from his Arsenal career, Henry won both the World Cup and European Championships, but at the peak of his powers, flattered to deceive on the international stage as the French stuttered at subsequent tournaments.
