The Arsenal number 10 jersey is now vacant owing to the fact that Jack Wilshere has joined AFC Bournemouth on a season-long loan and according to reports, a teammate of his wants it.

Mesut Ozil who recently claimed this same number after Lukas Podolski officially retired from the German national team is also eyeing the same at Arsenal.

In an interview with the German newspaper Express, the Premier League's highest assist holder for last season (2015/16) went straight to make it known that he is interested in occupying the slot.

“It just went free, and I definitely want it,” Ozil responded when quizzed on the availability of the number 10 jersey at Arsenal.

The club has already released its squad numbers for the present season so it remains to be seen whether the club would grant his request for a shirt number swap or not. Would that be one of his demands by the time he is to sign a new contract very soon? We shall see!
