Thierry Henry rejoining Arsenal in January is still a possibility, it has been claimed.

The New York Red Bulls striker has been training with his former club during the MLS off season and an emotional return to the Emirates Stadium has been mooted.

According to The Mirror, Arsenal have 'not ruled out' signing Henry as Arsene Wenger makes plans to reinforce his squad during the transfer window.

The Arsenal boss, for his part, has been noncommittal when asked if he planned to launch a move for Henry, telling reporters at the weekend that he had yet to consider the prospect.

“I don’t know yet," said Wenger. "That was an honest answer.

“You want to speak of Thierry Henry and I can understand that but at the moment he just practises with us.”

Henry scored 226 goals in 339 games for Arsenal before leaving for Barcelona in the summer of 2007.

The 34-year-old won the Champions League and two league titles during his time at the Nou Camp, prior to signing for New York last year.

Arsenal unveiled a statue of Henry outside the Emirates Stadium earlier this month as part of their 125th anniversary celebrations.
