Sullivan prepared to offer Frenchman a £75,000-a-week deal

West Ham are prepared to make Thierry Henry the highest-paid player in their history as they await a reply to a lucrative offer. The former Arsenal striker has been linked with a move to Major League Soccer side New York Red Bulls as his time at Barcelona appears set to come to an end this summer. However, West Ham joint chairman David Sullivan has revealed he wants to sign the 32-year-old and is willing to offer him a two-year deal worth around £75,000-a-week, more than £7.5million in total. "We're trying to assemble a more prolific strike force at West Ham and I'd love to have Henry here," Sullivan said in The Sun. "Our club is in debt but a striker of his quality and standing would make it a great deal. "Henry is still up there with the best. "I've made an offer which would make him the highest-paid player in the club's history. "And it's a serious offer because Henry could walk into almost any Premier League side."
