Thierry Henry has become televised football's most wanted man after impressing on his punditry debut for Sky Sports, reports the Daily Mail.

The goalscoring legend was given a guest spot for Sky Sport's coverage of Arsenal's game against Napoli on Wednesday alongside Gary Neville and Jamie Redknapp.

Arsenal failed to impress, losing 2-0, but Henry convinced TV bosses that his future lies in punditry after he hangs up his boots.

Henry, who scored 228 goals for Arsenal, is contracted with MLS team New York Red Bulls until the end of the 2014 season, but he is already being chased by several major broadcasters.

BBC, BT Sport and Sky Sports are all reportedly interested in offering Henry a permanent role with the BBC believed to be in pole position.

Henry has made himself available on Saturday nights for Match of the Day and has already teamed up with Rio Ferdinand to provide analysis for the BBC during their World Cup coverage this summer.

The Gunners legend has refused to comment on whether he plans to enter in to full-time punditry once his playing days are over.

His move in to TV could be bad news for Arsenal, as Henry was linked with a coaching under Arsene Wenger.

Henry is thought to be interested in a return to the Emirates in a non-playing capacity but would be unable to fulfil commitments to both TV and Arsenal.
