We know you love a squad number story. We don’t know why…we just know you do.
So, without further ado…Arsenal have confirmed that next season the following players will sport new digits on the back of their god-awful new Puma kits.
Petr Cech – 1 (previously 33)
Hector Bellerin – 2 (previously 24)
Mohamed Elneny – 4 (previously 35)
Granit Xhaka – 34 (previously 29)
So that’s a new Seaman, Dixon, Vieira and Marouane Chamakh without spending a penny.
Kudos to head coach elect Unai Emery…such a thrifty slight of hand must moisten the loins of Ivan Gazidis no end.
