Reports also claim that Frank Lampard has been linked with the Championship side despite being relieved of his duties as Chelsea boss last month.

Fulham's boss Scott Parker was also approached by Bournemouth shortly after Eddie Howie was sacked last summer.

Henry worked as Monaco's boss for three months in 2018 after he assisted Roberto Martinez as coach of the Belgian national team.

The 43-year-old then joined Montreal, signing a two-year deal until 2021 with an option to extend it by a further season.

Bournemouth are currently in the Championship table, 12 points off leaders Norwich and 11 behind Brentford who are occupying the final automatic promotion spot.
