Arsene Wenger is considering turning to Arsenal goalkeeping legend Jens Lehmann as a part of his backroom staff as the club undergo a bit of a shake-up.

The 47-year-old is expected to become the third new addition to manager Arsene Wenger's backroom staff this summer following the arrivals of fitness guru Darren Burgess and legal expert Huss Fahmy.

Lehmann had two spells at the club as a player and was the goalkeeper for the "Invincibles" team in the 2003-04 season, when Arsenal last won the Premier League title.

However, the decision to appoint Lehmann could be the most controversial yet given his outspoken manner and direct involvement with first-team affairs.

And although the Gunners' goalkeeping coach for the past 14 years, Gerry Peyton, has signed a new deal, Arsenal want to bring back Lehmann, who played in every game of the club's unbeaten 2003/2004 season.

He left Arsenal in 2008 to join Stuttgart and retired in 2010 before returning to the Gunners for a three-month spell in March 2011 as injury cover for Wojciech Szczesny, Lukasz Fabianski and Vito Mannone - making one further appearance.

Arsenal would prefer not to offload Giroud but may find it hard to keep him at the club if he pushes for an exit.
