Claude Puel is already on the edge of losing his job at Leicester City, with Roberto Martinez and Thierry Henry in the frame to replace him.
Puel is understood to have just two games to save his job with City chiefs ready to wield the ax ahead during the international break if results continue to go against them.
Henry would be keen to take his first steps into first-team management after giving up his television analyst role with Sky Sports following the World Cup. He was strongly linked with Aston Villa last month until the club decided to keep Steve Bruce.
Huddersfield Town’s David Wagner and Celtic’s Brendan Rodgers were both reported to be candidates to replace Puel at the end of last season.
Leicester lost 2-1 to Manchester United in their opening game of the season on Friday.
The concern in the Leicester boardroom stems from the team’s finish to last season when they lost five from their last seven games with just one win – and that has left the Frenchman clinging to his job.
