Arsenal have released their squad numbers for 2011-12 and there’s no place for Emmanuel Eboue.
His number 27 has gone to his Ivory Coast colleague Gervinho, which will fuel speculation about Eboue’s future at the club. However, both Manuel Almunia and Nicklas Bendtner are listed despite being close to moves away. Not to mention Cesc Fabregas still listed as Arsenal’s number 4.
Perhaps it’s a case that re-issuing him another number is pointless if he’s on the way out. Another notable absence from the first team squad list is Henri Lansbury who would have hoped to be part of the first team plans this season.
New boy Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will wear 15, Ryo Miyaichi 31 while Wojciech Szczesny’s decision to move to the number 13 is also confirmed.
