New Arsenal signing Gabriel Jesus will wear the No.9 jersey at the Emirates Stadium, the club have announced. The number was worn by Alexandre Lacazette last season and was vacant following the French striker’s switch to Olympique Lyonnais. Jesus wore No.9 at Man City, and has thus kept the same number at his new club.
The 25-year-old has moved to the Emirates for a fee of £45m. He is Arsenal’s fourth signing of the summer window after Fabio Vieira (jersey number 21), goalkeeper Matt Turner (jersey number 30) and Marquinhos (unassigned)
