After his impressive performances on Sky Sports and BBC's Match of the Day this week, Britain's major football broadcaster's are in a three-way tug-of-war for the legendary striker, according to the Independent.

Thierry Henry first appeared on Sky Sports as he was in the studio for the Napoli vs Arsenal Champions League fixture.

And the former Arsenal, Barcelona and Juventus striker appeared again on Saturday - this time alongside Gary Linekar and Alan Shearer on Match of the Day.

BBC have won an early battle for his signature as they announced the Frenchman will be part of their team covering the World Cup next summer.

And host Linekar says he is delighted to be joined by Henry.

"Thierry is one of the best strikers to have graced the game and really resonates with the British audience after such a successful time at Arsenal," he told the BBC.

"He is full of charisma and brings with him tremendous insight from his career in France, Italy, Spain, England and the USA."

And Henry - who won the World Cup in 1998 - was similarly pleased to be linking up with the BBC.

"I've enjoyed playing in World Cups, but to experience it as a fan and studio analyst will be a new, exciting challenge," he is quoted as saying on BBC Sport.

"I've been fortunate enough to play with and against many of the players taking part, so will look forward to watching their performances this summer."

Henry won two Premier League's and three FA Cup's whilst in England and was a member of Arsenal's famous 2004 Invincibles.

The Gunners legend will join the likes of Clarence Seedorf, Rio Ferdinand, Phil Neville and the BBC regulars in Brazil this summer.
