Lehmann, 41, who officially retired last year after a long career at Schalke, Borussia Dortmund, Arsenal and Stuttgart with a brief stint at AC Milan, could be signed on a one-year deal as back up for 22-year-old Ralf Faehrmann, Stuttgarter Zeitung reported on Friday.

The paper, quoting sources close to the keeper, said Schalke were considering the option after Germany keeper Manuel Neuer moved to Bayern Munich.

Schalke officials could not be immediately reached for a comment.

Lehmann came out of retirement to sign for Arsenal in March and made one appearance in a Premier League game against Blackpool.
