Retired Jens Lehmann may return to Arsenal

With Szczesny and Fabianski ruled out through injury, Arsenal find themselves with Manuel Almunia their only fit senior goalkeeper.

Lehmann, who retired from his playing career last year after a stint with Stuttgart, was due to undergo a coaching course at the Emirates.

German paper Bild has reported that the ex keeper is in talks to sign a short term contract with Arsenal to ease the injury crises, should he prove his fitness.
