Henry: back to Italy?

AC Milan manager Carlo Ancelotti has been publically quoted in his interest in signing Arsenal striker Thierry Henry. Henry has been heavily linked with a swap move to Barcelona for Samuel Eto’o and cash but the newly crowned Champions of Europe are entering the mix making a move abroad ever more likely for the Arsenal captain.

"Henry is a great striker and among the players that we are interested in" - Ancelotti

Alberto Gilardino has has already expressed his intention to leave the club after having failed to make much of an impact will probably get his wish. Ancelotti has already cleared the way. Even though they won the European Cup, the sale of Andriy Shevchenko last summer has weakened Milan up front and needing a big name to fill those shoes is a primary target for the club.

A move to AC Milan would be a disaster for Arsenal. While Henry, a former Juventus player, has been a good servant to the club and brought may goals and much excitement, it does seem that a change of scenery would be a good thing for both clubs. Poised for a switch for Samuel Eto’o seemed like a win-win for both clubs and players. A move taking Henry to Milan would leave Arsenal scrambling for cover. They might still land Eto’o but without Henry as bait, you can rest assured Barca will shop their player driving up his price.

In the end, I think Shevchenko would do better to go back to the San Siro and for Arsenal and Barca to swap strikers. I truly think Barca and Arsenal want to make this deal. Regardless of what does transpire, it’s starting to look a lot like Vieira to me.
