Jonathan Woodgate also in contention
That means he’s overtaken previous favourite, Jonathan Woodgate, who has since slid out in the betting to 9/2.
Reports this morning suggest Bournemouth are ramping up their efforts to bring Henry to the club, with the Frenchman keen on the move.
Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson: "Thierry Henry's enjoyed limited success in his managerial career thus far, but he's seemingly set for another shot in English football.
"Bookies have cut odds into 1/2 best price, indicating a 67% chance that Henry actually ends up in Dorset.
"Jonathan Woodgate has done a solid job since taking temporary charge of the Cherries, but could the club be coaxed by a more prevalent name?"
Next Bournemouth Manager Odds:
- Thierry Henry - 1/2
- Jonathan Woodgate - 9/2
- David Wagner - 6/1
- John Terry - 12/1
- Marco Silva - 16/1
