Arsenal have confirmed that new defender Sead Kolasinac will sport the number 31 in his debut season at Arsenal.

As you’ll remember, Kolasinac signed on a free transfer and will now compete with Nacho Monreal and Kieran Gibbs for a role on the left side of whatever formation we decided to go with in August.
