He is the Arsenal legend whose legend refuses to dim.

Indeed, Thierry Henry's return to the Emirates Stadium for five eventful weeks last season only served to remind fans just what a special player he was, and still can be.

Six months later, Henry is refusing to rule out playing for the Gunners again.

Granted, his blistering pace may not be what it once was, but after scoring two crucial goals against Leeds and Sunderland last campaign, it was clear his finishing hadn't diminished to the same extent.

Speaking to The Sun, the Frenchman set Arsenal fans' hearts pacing with intriguing comments regarding his future.

"I would like to go back to England with Arsenal for sure," he said.

"Who knows what might happen in the future? I’ve not yet spoken to Arsene about it so I don’t know what capacity I could go back in."

Such a statement seems to suggest that Henry still longs to put on the Arsenal shirt again, and is issuing something of a "come and get me" plea to boss Arsene Wenger.

He even went on to say in unequivocal terms: "But I will go back to Arsenal."

Henry is currently in terrific form for MLS side New York Red Bulls, for whom he has scored an impressive 10 goals in 14 league games.

His comments contrast greatly with the controversy surrounding wantaway Arsenal striker Robin van Persie, who looks set to leave the club on an extremely sour note.

Whether fans would welcome a van Persie return to the club in a few years time would remain to be seen.
