Alex Iwobi has become the latest Arsenal player to change his shirt number. The exciting young forward sported 45 last season, but next year will wear the 17 left vacant by Alexis Sanchez who moved to 7.
It’s the latest in a frenzied week of shirt number changing. After Alexis, Aaron Ramsey changed from 16 to 8, Granit Xhaka was confirmed as the new number 16, and even Per Mertesacker got in on the action.
Further number changes are expected with rumours that Petr Cech will take the number 1, Hector Bellerin could be confirmed as the number 2 having established himself as the first choice right back, while Francis Coquelin has asked to have the number of the beast.
It’s just a shame Andrei Arshavin isn’t still here, we could have given him Pi.
