VfB Stuttgart goalkeeper Jens Lehmann has been linked with MLS second-year club Seattle Sounders.

The 40-year old former Arsenal gloveman, who could not stop Barcelona in the Champions League on Wednesday night, has been linked with a move away from the German club at the end of the season and rumours have spread about a potential move to the USA.

The Sounders have emerged as a likely home because Lehmann's former Arsenal teammate Freddie Ljungberg plays there but the fact they currently have one of the league's best shot-stoppers in Kasey Keller indicates it may be no more than speculation.
