Monaco have reportedly made contact with Thierry Henry about the possibility of replacing their soon to be departed manager, Leonardo Jardim.

The Ligue 1 club are understood to be on the verge of sacking their current boss as they have made a horrendous start to the current campaign, winning just one of their opening nine matches to sit 18th in the table.

As a result, they have now approached free agent Thierry Henry, according to Sky, who claim Claudio Ranieri is also on the club’s shortlist.

The Arsenal legend has been working as an assistant coach to Belgium boss Roberto Martinez for the past few years and has expressed a strong desire to enter management.

He has been heavily linked with the vacancy at Aston Villa, although Harry Redknapp told talkSPORT on Tuesday that he had been informed that Henry would not be taking the job.

Now the 41-year-old may get his shot in the dugout at the club where he began his football career.
