Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed Jens Lehmann will sign a short-term contract with the club.
The former German international retired in 2010 but will make a sensational return to the club he left in 2008.
The 41-year-old is even in line to be on the bench for Saturday’s trip to West Bromwich Albion.
Wenger will bring back the fans-favourite as injuries to Lukasz Fabianski, Wojciech Szczesny and Vito Mannone have left Manuel Amunia as the only recognised keeper at the club.
Lehmann spent five years with Arsenal and made almost 200 appearances for the club after his 2003 arrival from Borussia Dortmund.
He was part of the Invincible team that won the Premier League in 2004 and was sent-off in the 2006 Champions League final defeat to Barcelona.
But Wenger is happy he has brought the veteran back and is confident the German will sign soon.
“Lehmann is training with us and will sign for the rest of the season,” Wenger said.
“We have no cover in the Premier League, so that is why I decided to bring Jens back. He has not signed, but it [a contract] has been agreed.”
