Thierry Henry's agent is threatening legal action after Football France magazine claimed the Arsenal striker has agreed a three year deal with Barcelona.

Henry's future at the Emirates has been the subject of intense speculation despite him signing a new four year deal with the Gunners last year.

Jerome Anderson has vehemently denied the claims saying he is even considering taking legal action against the magazine.

"No meetings have even taken place between Jerome Anderson and Barcelona in France or anywhere else, and Jerome Anderson will be seeking legal advice against France Football," he said in a statement.

Henry himself denied the reports, telling another French magazine - L'Equipe - that the news was "rubbish."

"Nothing is done. I repeat, nothing," Henry declared.

"Writing about a meeting that never took place is absolute rubbish. At this moment I am an Arsenal player and in the same situation as I was last year.

"Last season people were announcing all over the place that I was leaving. Some people wrote that it would happen for sure but at the end of the day I stayed at Arsenal. It could be the same this year.

"I've not taken any decision and my name is not up on any departures board. If something happens, I will tell everybody."

Henry's future at the Emirates has been the subject on intense speculation despite him signing a new four year deal with the Gunners last year.

Henry recently told ESPN that it was "great to hear" reports of Milan's interest in him but also stressed that he is "an Arsenal player at the moment".

"The bosses have been unsettled and a lot of players at the club have been unsettled," Henry said of the departure of vice chairman David Dein.

"I was devastated when Mr Dein left the club. I don't know what happened and I don't want to know but whatever went on, Mr Dein leaving was not a clever move."
