Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is considering adding former goalkeeper Jens Lehmann to his backroom staff, according a report.

The Independent has revealed that the Arsenal boss is thinking carefully about bringing in the 47-year-old as part of his coaching staff shake up.

Lehmann joined the squad back in 2003, and helped the club win their last Premier League title during the ‘Invincibles’ season, before coming out of retirement for a second stint in 2011.

If he was to move to the Emirates it would then be his third spell with the Londoners.

The former German international ended his footballing career with the club in 2011 after making a total of 200 appearances across all competitions for the Gunners, and Wenger believes his expertise would be useful for the club’s next campaign.

The newspaper claim that the German could be Wenger’s latest addition to his dug-out team after he recently appointed new strength and conditioning expert Darren Burgess.

It is said that the French boss is also considering former Crystal Palace staff member, Andy Woodman, for the goalkeeping coach role, but Lehmann remains in contention.

Wenger looks to strengthen his team on and off the pitch after he extended his reign at the club for a further two years.

Despite winning the FA Cup, the north London club had a disappointing campaign within the Premier League last season and finished in fifth place for the first time since the Gunners boss has been at the helm.
