Henry became the odds-on favourite to succeed Leonardo Jardim after he was sacked in midweek following a string of poor results that left Monaco languishing in 18th in French Ligue 1.

As Henry stood on the touchlines during a Belgium v Switzerland Nations League game on Friday, the website of L'Equipe said the 1998 World Cup winner "has agreed" to a three-year deal with the club and would be unveiled after the weekend.

Henry will "leave Belgium on Saturday to travel to Monaco, where his three-year contract will be officialised".

The report added: "He will be unveiled to the media on Monday."
