Gunners legend Thierry Henry is reportedly interested in the vacant managerial position at English Championship outfit Aston Villa.
The Midlands giants are not without a manager after former boss Steve Bruce was sacked on Wednesday following the wretched run of just one victory in the last ten games.
According to the report from the Daily Mirror, Thierry Henry has thrown himself into the frame for the managerial job at Villa Park.
The report further revealed that the club is targeting a Premier League manager despite the interest shown by Belgium national team assistant manager Thierry Henry.
He had earlier been linked with the same job when the club owners took charge in the summer but their preference has since changed in favour of underfire Newcastle United manager Rafael Benitez.
The Spanish tactician has had an underwhelming start to the new Premier League season.
He has masterminded the Magpies’ seven-game winless run at the start of the season with just two points.
Newcastle United have drawn two and lost five of the first seven league games of the new season.
AC Milan owners Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens have already directed new CEO Christian Purslow to oversee the process of appointing a new manager.
