Thierry Henry holds talks with Bournemouth

ARSENAL legend Thierry Henry is reportedly in talks with Bournemouth over becoming the club’s new boss.

The Cherries sacked Jason Tindall at the start of February, placing Jonathan Woodgate in interim charge.

Former boss Eddie Howe as well as Chelsea legends Frank Lampard and John Terry have been linked with the managerial vacancy.

Sky Sports reports the Bournemouth board have been locked in meetings and interviews for the last two weeks and have spoken to the Frenchman.

Lampard, 42, was sacked by Chelsea last month but has experience of the Championship having previously led Derby to the play-offs before moving to Stamford Bridge in 2019.

Aston Villa assistant Terry is also familiar with the second-tier having been Dean Smith’s No2 since 2018.

Tindall only lasted six months in the South Coast hot seat after replacing Howe following the club’s relegation to the Championship at the end of last season.

He was Howe’s No2 at the Vitality Stadium before getting the top job but was axed after the 2-1 defeat at home to strugglers Sheffield Wednesday left the Cherries sixth in the table two weeks ago.

One win in their last eight matches was enough for the board to make a change.

Former Real Madrid and England defender Woodgate had only days previously been added to the coaching set-up as Tindall’s No2.
