Poyet was unhappy after one of his strikers, Gaetan Laborde, was sold to league rivals Montpellier without his knowledge.
The former Brighton and Sunderland boss says he no longer has "the desire to continue" at Bordeaux and Wenger says Henry is keen to take on the role.
"Yes, he wants to do it," Wenger told Corse Matin. "He is intelligent and he has the qualities.
"The existential question that we always ask ourselves is whether we are ready to sacrifice our life for the coaching profession."
Henry became assistant manager to Belgium boss Roberto Martinez in 2016.
