Henrikh Mkhitaryan will wear the No 7 shirt vacated by Alexis Sanchez at Arsenal. Hpwever, teh Armenian midfielder will have to wear a different number in Europa League matches.
The No 7 shirt was vacated by Alexis this month but, because the forward wore the number during the group-stage win against Cologne back in September, UEFA rules state that Mkhitaryan must wear a different number for the remainder of Arsenal’s Europa League campaign.
This number will be confirmed soon.
Mkhitaryan completed his move to the club on Tuesday – and was straight into action for training at London Colney.
