Arsenal FC 2020-2021 Squad Numbers

As Arsenal Football Club announced on Thursday, Saka switches from the 77 to the clean number 7 in the future, which was already worn by Tomáš Rosický during the early 2000s (2006/07 - 2015/16), amongst others. In the season before, Armenian Henrikh Mkhitaryan techically still occupied Arsenal's No. 7 as he was on a one-year loan in Italy playing for Roma. At the moment, Henrikh Mkhitaryan's future within the squad is unclear.

Already signed with AFC before last season's kick-off, Saint-Étienne's prodigy William Saliba was immediately moved back to the South French outfit in a one-year loan deal. In the 2020-21 season, William Saliba will play for Arsenal FC and gets the 4. Arsenal's number 4 has been worn by iconic Arsenal players such as Patrick Vieira (1996-97 - 2004-05).
