Mesut Ozil will wear the No 10 shirt for us from the start of the 2018/19 season.
The Germany international has worn the No 11 shirt since joining us in 2013 but will switch for the upcoming campaign.
Mesut said: “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!”
