The Gunners appointed the Spanish head coach as their new manager at the end of the 2017-18 Premier League season following a hard campaign. Liverpool, just like Tottenham, must win something someday.
Lehmann also gave a surprising compliment to Spurs by comparing them to the youthful Arsenal sides that he was a part of between 2003 and 2008.
Arsenal are not widely expected to make any signings on deadline day, having already added five players to their squad this summer. In 2008, Ljungberg was ranked number 11 in a poll of the greatest Arsenal players in history.
That gutsy display against the eventual bronze medalists is thought to have gained manager Akira Nishino more favour in his homeland, but the Japan FA would still prefer to bring in Wenger. It appears they right now don't know how to win trophies.
The Gunners have also spent £20m on Bayer Leverkusen and Germany goalkeeper Bernd Leno to provide Petr Cech and David Ospina with stiff competition. He fails to do so? After 20 successful years with the club, Wenger's influence began to wane in recent seasons with the Gunners dropping well off the pace. "He has not given any proof of it", Lehmann said. He's 25 now and made 100 professional appearances so far, 50 of them coming for Roma last season. He was a true fan favourite at Highbury (and subsequently when they shifted grounds, the Emirates), being crowned PFA Player of the Year.
