Son of majority shareholder Stan Kroenke, Josh Kroenke, is reportedly keen to add Thierry Henry to the list of potential candidates to replace Arsene Wenger should the Frenchman step down this summer.

Wenger has yet to tell the press what he will do with his contract set to expire this summer, with the board reportedly making a list of potential replacements as a precautionary measure.

Juventus manager Max Allegri looks to be the frontrunner to replace Wenger, but Kroenke is supposedly looking at Henry to take the job.

It’s believed Kroenke has met with Henry about his plans for management in the future and, according to The Daily Telegraph, the American will do his best to put the Arsenal legend among the list of candidates.

The 39-year-old Frenchman is currently working as assistant manager to Roberto Martinez with Belgium, but has previously stated that he would not turn down the opportunity to manager his former club one day.

Henry remains a cult hero at Arsenal and many fans would love to see the Frenchman take charge of the club, even if he lacks the experience to do so.
