The Championship side want to talk to the Frenchman about the managerial vacancy
Henry is currently boss at MLS outfit Montreal Impact, but the Cherries want the opportunity to talk to the Frenchman about their top job.
However, Henry endured a nightmare time in Monaco and only lasted three months, 20 games, in charge.
Monaco found themselves in the Ligue 1 relegation zone under his management during the 2018-19 season, having won only five times in all competitions.
But under a year on, he got his next managerial role in the MLS with Montreal, signing a two-year deal until the end of the 2021 season with an option to extend it by a further season.
Henry’s appointment would be viewed as a gamble with Bournemouth desperately targeting a straight return to the Premier League.
The Cherries currently sit sixth in England’s second division, 12 points off leaders Norwich and 11 behind Brentford occupying the final automatic promotion spot.
