Arsenal have confirmed that Mesut Ozil has changed his squad number from 11 to 10.
The midfielder, who had long coveted the number, inherits the shirt from Jack Wilshere who has worn it for six years but has left the club.
Speaking about his new number, Ozil told Arsenal.com: “It has never been a secret how special this number is to me.
“My childhood idol Zinedine Zidane wore this number and it is still the most characteristic one for the playmaker position.
“I’m looking forward to putting it on for the first time at Arsenal after the summer break!”
Ozil wore 10 at Real Madrid between 2011-2013 and has worn the number for Germany since 2016.
The club have also confirmed that any supporters who have bought any of the new Puma kits for the upcoming season via the club will be in line for a replacement, see here for more details.
