Former Arsenal favourite Thierry Henry is one of the favourites to take over at Ligue 1 outfit AS Monaco.

The 2016/17 French champions have endured a frustrating start to the current campaign having only won one game this season. They have lost their last four in succession, leaving them in 18th position in the league standings after nine games. Now 21 points behind early leaders Paris Saint Germain, the pressure has increased on current boss Leonardo Jardim, who has been at the club for four years.

According to Sky Sports, the French outfit are considering sacking the Portuguese and replacing him with Henry. The former French forward begun his playing career at the Stade Louis II, making 141 appearances and scoring 28 goals, and his return would be his first job within management.

Henry is currently serving under Roberto Martinez with the Belgian national side that reached the semi-finals of the 2018 World Cup in Russia, eventually finishing third.

He was previously linked with the vacant managerial role with Championship outfit Aston Villa following the sacking of Steve Bruce but is now reportedly out of the running for the post at Villa Park.

Despite that, he can be backed at 33/1 with Paddy Power to arrive in the West Midlands.
