Former Arsenal striker Thierry Henry is being considered as a replacement for manager Leonardo Jardim at Monaco.

The Ligue 1 side announced Jardim's departure from the club on Thursday after dropping to 18th on the log, having won only one league game so far this season.

After going down 2-1 at home to Rennes in Ligue 1 on Sunday, they are stuck in the relegation playoff spot with six points, one more than bottom side Guingamp.

Do you think Henry could lead Monaco back up the table?

The attraction of succeeding Jardim at Monaco, where Henry won silverware in a seven-year spell, has convinced the 41-year-old to enter into discussions with the Ligue 1 club. "The entire club wish Leonardo and his coaching staff all the best for the next stage of their careers".

French and British media have reported that former France global Thierry Henry is the favourite the replace him.

In a club statement, Jardim said: "I'm grateful and proud to have been Monaco coach for more than four years". I always gave my best and worked with passion.

Jardim led the club to another French title in 2017, their first since 2000. "We achieved some great victories together and I'll always keep those memories".

Monaco also progressed to the Champions League semi-finals in 2016-17 under Jardim, who built a vaunted squad which saw the likes of Kylian Mbappe, Bernardo Silva, Benjamin Mendy and Tiemoue leave, with Thomas Lemar and Fabinho heading for the exit this summer.

"I want to express my profound respect for all the work Leonardo has done", Vasilyev said.

"His time here will remain one of the most attractive periods in the club's history".

"Leonardo will still be part of the AS Monaco family".
