Former Arsenal goalkeeper Jens Lehmann could make an emotional return to the club following a succession of injuries to their shot-stoppers.

Lukasz Fabianski, Wojciech Szczesny and Vito Mannone are all on the casualty list leaving Arsenal with Manuel Almunia as the only recognised keeper available.

Manager Arsene Wenger wants cover for Almunia and is thinking about bringing in Lehmann on emergency loan.

The 41-year-old left North London in 2008 after five successful seasons and retired in 2010, but is now working with the Gunners’ youth goalkeepers.

While the ex-German international has not discussed the move with Wenger, he does not rule out the possibility.

“I am in London and so far have heard nothing of such plans, but you never know…” he said to Bild.
