New Arsenal signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan will wear the No.7 shirt for his new club, the Gunners have revealed.
The Armenia international traded Manchester United for the Gunners on Monday, with Alexis Sanchez going the other way, after the 29-year-old successfully obtained appropriate documentation from the visa office in Liverpool.
It was soon announced that Alexis would take up the historic No.7 shirt at Old Trafford, following in the footsteps of such players as Eric Cantona, David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo, before it was confirmed that Mkhitaryan would don the same jersey at the Emirates Stadium.
The former Shakhtar Donetsk star follows the likes of Robert Pires, Kevin Campbell and David Rocastle in wearing the No.7 for the north London club.
Mkhitaryan made 11 Premier League starts this season under Jose Mourinho before leaving for Arsenal, failing to establish himself as a regular first choice under the Portuguese during his time at the club.
