Monaco have made contact with the representatives of Thierry Henry over the possibility of taking over as manager, Sky Sports News understands.
The French club are keen to name their former striker as new first-team boss, after Monaco endured a poor start to the season under Leonardo Jardim, winning only one game in their first nine.
The 2016-17 Ligue 1 champions currently sit in 18th place, with just six points and having lost their last three consecutive league fixtures.
Claudio Ranieri, who defied to the odds to win the Premier League with Leicester City, is one of the names Monaco wish to speak to should they move on from Jardim, Sky Sports News understands.
Ranieri is understood to be happy to consider a return to the club he once managed, though it also looking for a potential return to the Premier League.
Reports in France had widely linked Henry with a return to his former club but Sky Sports News understands he is not the only candidate Monaco are looking at.
Monaco are believed to have entered talks with Jardim regarding the potential ending of his time with the club, as state reports.
The news comes after Henry has been strongly linked with the vacant managerial position at Aston Villa, and was made the prime candidate following the recent departure of Steve Bruce.
As revealed by Sky Sports, Belgium assistant coach Henry remains undecided on his future and could now be set to take further considerations over his next step in the game should Jardim leave Monaco.
