There’s no harm in trying.
Everton boss David Moyes made a cheeky attempt to lure Thierry Henry back to the Premier League.
Henry, currently training with Arsenal during the MLS off-season, was at Arsenal for the club’s 125 year anniversary celebrations.
Moyes is desperate to strengthen his strike force in January and would love to snap up Henry on loan from New York Red Bulls. Henry is due back for a Red Bulls training camp on January 15.
Everton did a similar arrangement with LA Galaxy and Landon Donovan in the past and Moyes admits he had a quiet word with Henry.
Moyes said: “I already asked him (Henry) on the way in. I asked him, he’ll tell you; if he wants a game let me know.”

Cash strapped Everton could well do with a cost effective way to improve their striking options and a move to snap up Thierry Henry, even on a short-term deal, is a wise but perhaps fruitless one to make.
David Moyes has seen his side manage just 15 goals in 14 Premier League matches and their top scorer, Velios, has notched up just three strikes this season.
Thierry Henry has been training at Arsenal since the MLS season ended but it seems unlikely he will look to sign a playing deal and indeed the New York Red Bulls would stand to get little from such a deal and could of course end up seeing their prized asset injured, much like what happened to David Beckham during his stint at AC Milan.
