Jens Lehmann is holding talks with Arsenal about a shock return to the club reports SkySportsNews.
The injury sustained by Wojciech Szczesny in last week’s Champions League tie in Barcelona has left Arsene Wenger with a goalkeeping headache as Manuel Almunia is the only remaining number one option.
The Gunners boss is now considering bringing in additional cover, and has turned his attention to the 41-year-old former Germany international who made nearly 200 appearances in a five year spell at Arsenal.
Lehmann returned to the Bundesliga with Stuttgart in 2008 before calling time on his playing career at the end of last season.
He is due to spend six weeks back at the Emirates Stadium to work on his coaching badges, but when asked about the possibility of returning to Arsenal in a playing capacity, Lehmann was reluctant to discuss matters.
"I am in London and so far have heard nothing of such plans, but you never know," Lehmann told Bild am Sonntag.
Arsenal also failed to comment on speculation however it is believed the club have held ‘positive talks’ on a deal that will see Lehmann sign for the Gunners on a short-term deal until the end of the current campaign.
