​Arsenal goalkeeping legend Jens Lehmann has voiced his opinion on whether or not the Gunners should look to Joe Hart as a possible replacement for the ageing Petr Cech.


Speaking to ​TalkSPORT, when questioned on the matter Lehmann bluntly responded: "No, I wouldn't (replace Cech with Hart),"

Cech, who turns 35 in May, has had an illustrious career, winning a total of 16 club honours -  including four Premier League titles, four FA Cups, and a Champions League trophy. 


The former Czech Republic captain has spent the last decade in the limelight, being widely regarded as one of the best goalkeepers of his generation.


His form of late has been questioned, however, with many suspecting that he's past his best after a few underwhelming performances. In particular, Arsenal's recent encounter against top of the league Chelsea, in which he gifted Chelsea's third goal to Cesc Fabregas.

Former Germany stopper Lehmann doesn't seem to agree with such accusations though.


"Petr Cech is not too old. He’s maturing," Lehmann claimed.


“Dropping him for the Bayern Munich game is a decision I don’t understand."


Meanwhile, Joe Hart has been ever present whilst on loan at Torino this season, but a return to Manchester City is looking unlikely. 


The England international has been linked with a host of Premier League clubs ever since his arrival in Italy, such as Liverpool and West Ham, with Arsenal being the latest rumour to circulate.
