Stuttgart close to deal for Arsenal keeper Lehmann
Club chairman Erwin Staudt admits that the Reds cannot afford to match the wages Lehmann enjoyed in England, but is confident that the veteran shot-stopper will be on his way to Gottlieb-Daimler-Stadion in the near future.
"This will hopefully be made concrete in the next few days," said Staudt.
"It is not a straightforward conversation, there are options to be discussed."
The 2007 Bundesliga champions are believed to have offered Lehmann two-thirds of his current salary with the Gunners, on a one-year deal which includes the option for an extension.
