Young Arsenal forward Eddie Nketiah will be wearing the No.14 jersey for the Gunners next season, the club have officially announced. Nketiah put pen to paper a new long term contract, and has changed his jersey number, opting for No.14 instead of the No.30 he donned last season.
The 14 shirt was left vacant at Arsenal following the winter departure of Pierre Emerick Aubameyang to Barcelona.
The other famous players to have worn the 14 shirt at Arsenal before Nketiah and Auba were legendary forward Thierry Henry and Theo Walcott.
Nketiah’s fellow Arsenal forward Gabriel Martinelli also recently opted for a number change, with the Brazilian set to wear No.11 from the 2022/23 season.
The Gunners have also released their new home strip for 22/23, with the away and third uniforms yet to be unveiled.
