Report: Wenger considers welcoming back 47-year-old for third Arsenal spell

The club have Arsenal having already hired a new high-performance director in Darren Burgess to oversee the fitness regime and a contract negotiator in Huss Fahmy.

Lehmann's role won't be concentrated on just the club's goalkeepers, however, with the German working with the entire first team squad, alongside Arsene Wenger, assistant manager Steve Bould and first team coach Boro Primorac.

The German had two previous spells with the Gunners during his playing career and was part of the 'Invincibles' team that won the Premier League title in 2003-04.

But Lehmann is also in contention as Wenger looks for an edge in his backroom staff as with the club looking to bounce back from a fifth-place finish last season.

He isn't expected to take a goalkeeper coach role but has told Welt in Germany that he is heading back to north London.

Arsenal are now likely to make it clear to Barcelona to stop trying to destabilise their players as they are adamant that Bellerin is going nowhere. Lehmann also helped Arsenal to win the FA Cup in 2005, saving a penalty from Paul Scholes in the final.

And how he is returning to join Arsene Wenger's coaching team, although it is understood he will not replace current goalkeeping coach Gerry Peyton.

The La Liga giants are in need of a right-back and reports have suggested that they are after their former player.

Former Chelsea defender Burley has challenged the FA Cup winners to get their deals over the line early on to avoid a repeat of last summer.
