Barcelona are waiting for Thierry Henry to clarify whether he wants to move to Spain, as reports continue to link the striker with a summer exit from Arsenal.

Speculation has been rife that negotiations between the two clubs have been ongoing behind the scenes, and Spanish daily El Mundo Deportivo reported on Saturday that the Catalans have been locked in talks with Henry's agent, Jerome Anderson.

Henry's rather vague comments regarding his future in recent days have done little to quell talk that he could be ready to bring an end to his eight-year stay in North London.

According to El Mundo Deportivo, Barca officials Txiki Beguiristain and Ferran Soriano have offered Henry a three-year deal in order to tempt him to Camp Nou, meaning a transfer fee must now be agreed with the London club.

However, sporting director Beguiristain has conceded that the Liga giants are still waiting to learn whether Henry is ready to leave the English capital for a new challenge abroad.

"If he has the desire to play here, then we can see if it's going to happen or not," Beguiristain told the Sunday Express. "Barcelona remains the same. It is the perfect place for players who want to come here. - Sky Sports
