Elite man confirms he will be at Emirates next season – “Yes, it is true”

Former Arsenal hero Jens Lehmann has made a return to Emirate stadium ahead of next season campaign, according to report.

According to German media outlet Welt, the 47-years shot stopper admitted he will make a shock return to Arsenal when quizzed whether the rumours linking him to Arsenal was true few days back.

Report has it that the 47-year-old German is coming in to work alongside Steve Bould as a general first team coach and not as a goalkeeping coach.

The veteran shot stopper was part of the Gunners squad that won the 2003/04 league title in an unbeaten run, where he featured in all the league matches.

After signing a new two-year deal with the Gunners back in May, Arsene Wenger is now ready to shake-up his backroom staff.

The French tactician has already brought in Darren Burgess as the club’s new fitness expert, as he seeks to overcome the continuous injuries that have impeded his players’ performances.

Lehmann was spotted in Arsenal training ground yesterday as he oversees their training session.

The Gunners have also confirmed the arrival of Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette ahead of their pre-season tour to Austalia and China.

Report also has it that the North London club are closing in on Leicester City attacking midfielder Riyad Mahrez.
