Arsenal confirmed that wonderkid Bukayo Saka will be taken the No7 shirt from next season. The young English starlet is delighted with the change of numbers and posted a special video on social media.
Saka enjoyed his breakout season with Arsenal wearing the No.77 shirt. He has played 38 games for Arsenal across all competitions this season, scoring 4 goals and providing 11 assists. Earlier this month Saka signed a new multi-year contract with the Gunners, keeping him at the club until the summer of 2024.
With his new number, Saka will be following the footsteps of several club icons like Liam Brady, David Rocastle and Robert Pires. The youngster is delighted to have taken his new shirt number and this also shows the confidence Arsenal have in the talent of the 18-year-old.
