As speculation continues to build over Arsene Wenger’s eagerly anticipated announcement on his Arsenal future, Gunners legend Thierry Henry has expressed an interested in the post.

In an interview with Canal Plus Henry stated that he’s keen to manage his beloved Arsenal, but has admitted that he’s likely to have to wait a while for this opportunity to arise.

Sky Sports pundit Henry, who scored 175 goals for Arsenal, is currently working as an assistant to Roberto Martinez at Belgium, who were held to a disappointing 1-1 draw with Greece over the weekend, although they remain top of Group H at the half-way stage of the qualification campaign.

Henry, a 25/1 shot to succeed Wenger, is likely to continue working under Martinez as Belgium bid to progress through to back-to-back World Cups for the first time since 1998 and 2002.

Henry memorably hoisted the most famous trophy in football back in 1998, and the Red Devils can currently be found at a best-priced 18/1 (Betfair) to win the tournament for the first time in their history.

Meanwhile, it’s Juventus boss Max Allegri who remains the 4/1 favourite in the Next Arsenal Manager Market, ahead of the likes of Thomas Tuchel, Eddie Howe, Rafa Benitez and Patrick Vieira.
