Thierry Henry is reportedly engaged in a showdown with his Belgium boss Roberto Martinez to take charge of Leicester, as pressure grows on current manager Claude Puel.
The Daily Mirror says that the Arsenal legend has two games to save his job.
This follows a 2-1 opening-night loss at Manchester United, plus an end to 2017/18 that contained five losses from the last seven games in the Premier League.
Martinez signed a two-year deal extension on the eve of World Cup, where he guided Belgium to third place.
A return to club management for the ex-Swansea City, Wigan Athletic and Everton supremo could appeal, and if it does, he could bring Belgium assistant Henry along.
Henry has declared an ambition to become a club manager in his own right for the first time.
