The guy who leaked the photos of Granit Xhaka posing for his official Arsenal photoshoot claims that there will be three shirt changes when the new season starts and that Xhaka will wear the 34, his Bundesliga number.
Petr Cech will allegedly take the number one shirt pointing to Wojciech Szczesny definitely being away from the club next season. The player himself was speaking about his future to the Italian press and also revealed that he feels he has learned more in six months in Italy than he did in 10 years at Arsenal.
Demiri also adds that Alexis will take Tomas Rosicky’s number 7 shirt, while Francis Coquelin will be given Mikel Arteta’s number 8.
Cech – 1
Alexis – 7
Coquelin – 8
Granit Xhaka – 34
