Borussia Monchengladbach are ready to try and lure out-of-favour Arsenal star Jens Lehmann back to the club.

The Germany international has been dropped by Arsene Wenger and is now playing second fiddle to Spaniard Manuel Almunia.

The Gunners have turned around their shaky form in recent weeks and it appears that Lehmann could be set for an extended spell on the bench.

As a result his future with the North Londoners is in some doubt, especially as the 35-year-old is desperate for first-team football to try and claim Germany's number one shirt from rival Oliver Kahn - with the 2006 World Cup finals in his homeland on the horizon.

His former club are now pondering the possibility of bringing him back to the Bundesliga, and Monchengladbach boss Dick Advocaat has made no secret of his desire to strengthen his squad.

Borussia director of football Christian Hochstatter admits the club could well submit an offer during the transfer window.

"Normally, such a transfer would be difficult to achieve, but if Jens sits on the bench for much longer, then who knows what happens?" he stated.

"When somebody like Lehmann becomes available then you've certainly got to consider it."

Psst ... skysports, Lehmann played for Borussia Dortmund, not Borussia Monchengladbach. Tarts.

Well they cant be perfect, after all the pundits thought you put out stevenage in the cup last season and not Farnboro' and Vieri and Vieira are the same person.

The GK is not the reason you don't do well in the CL, its the fact you dont have a plan B.

plan B is a cop out, good teams don't need plan Bs, we just haven't played out usual game, plan B if anything is a problem, we should stick to plan A.

G4L, i am sure Hildebrand is cup tied so your plan would make us weaker in the goalkeeping department. :shades:

DON SELL HIM, we dont have a backup keeper.
Amen to that...

We would only be put in more trouble with him sold, the best thing would be to give Lehmann his position back in the team.
I like Lehmann, no he's not the perfect keeper but on the other hand we won't be able to get this "perfect keeper" in the winter-transfer-window...so... :thmbdown:

I thought Arsenal made a huge mistake signing him. I was hoping they would sign Tim Howard from my beloved RotMasters (aka MetroStars) when I heard the rumors about interests from the EPL. Lehmann couldn't perform for Milan and sulked when he was replaced by Abbiati and was sold back to Germany. His tenure here wasn't impressive so if they can unload him, so much the better. Didn't Arsenal have a young keeper they had to farm out because Seaman was still hanging around :confused:

Taylor did make a mistake at the weekend for Leicester but he's still a quality goalkeeper in my opinion. I've always thought he should have got more of a chance in the first team.

keep faith in taylor, he is looking to be great keeper. hopefully with enough games under his belt.

another thing i like about his is that he is home grown player. I think there is not enough home grown/English players in our team// :(
