Thierry Henry is the front runner to become Bournemouth’s new boss.
Mirror Sport understands the Cherries board are recommending to owner Russian businessman Maxim Demin, that the 43-year-old Arsenal legend succeeds Jason Tindall who was sacked two weeks ago.
The choice for Demin is understood to be between Henry and former Huddersfield boss David Wagner.
But the club’s hierarchy are huge fans of Henry and see him as the man to improve their fortunes.
Should the board get approval from owner Demin, they hope to approach Henry’s club, Montreal Impact, for talks for the Frenchman to take over.
Henry – who signed a two-year deal with Montreal in November 2019 – has previously managed Monaco and has been on Roberto Martinez’s coaching staff with Belgium.
Tindall – who worked as Eddie Howe’s assistant as the club rose from League Two to the Premier League – was sacked after six months following four straight defeats.https://data.reachplc.com/210213943285855?utm_source=mirror_newsletter&utm_campaign=arsenal_fc_newsletter2&utm_medium=email&isIframeEmbed=1
