Kevin Keegan hopes Newcastle United can bring Thierry Henry back to the Premier League.
Henry left Arsenal for Barcelona last summer, but has yet to make aa significant impact in Spain.
Keegan admits he would relish the opportunity of signing the French striker.
“I would like to fetch Thierry Henry back to England,” Keegan told Radio Newcastle. “He’s the best player I’ve seen in the Premiership.
“When you’re pitch-side, what I’ve seen him do to good players has been incredible.
“Sometimes you can take advantage of a situation and get what I call lucky.”
During his previous spell at St James Park, Keegan spent a then world record fee of £15million on Alan Shearer, and he admits that he would like to repeat the feat.
He added: “I’d like to do what we did last time and surprise people. It would be nice to break a world record.
“Why rule it out? I’d like to bring players here that amaze people and we stop just talking about being a big club – but, with our actions, we show that we are.
“Sometimes people limit themselves by saying, ‘we can’t do that’. You say ‘why not?’ and they don’t give you an answer.
“If we can get this club going in the right direction we have the owner who will find us the money for these players. You start by building up trust with the people who provide the finance that you can find these players at the right price. It’s easy to get players to a club once it’s flying in the right direction.”
