The majestic Frenchman is currently in talks about extending his contract, despite the fact he still has two years left to run on his current deal, as talk of a summer switch to Barcelona resurfaces.
Although Henry has never spoken of a desire to quit North London, a reoccurring theme of Barcelona's interest never seems to entirely disappear.
It is expected the Catalan giants could make a renewed effort next summer to land Arsenal's new captain but team-mate Reyes is anxious for Henry to commit to a long-term stay in The Premiership.
''I signed a new contract with Arsenal this summer because I believe in this project,'' said Reyes. ''I just hope Thierry will do the same.
''If the club agrees to reward him with a huge new deal because they think it is best for the club, then I am fully behind that.
''We love having him here.''
