Mesut Ozil to get Arsenal's number 11 shirt?

Arsenal are set to complete a deal for Mesut Ozil, but which shirt number will he wear?

Arsenal are sensationally looking to complete a deal for Mesut Ozil, the impressive German international.

Thousands of fans will be rushing to order replica shirts emblazoned with their soon-to-be signing's name on, but which number will he wear?

There are a number of vacant shirt numbers in the Gunners squad the would-be record signing could take, but one stands out.

The numbers under 30 available are: 2, 11, 13, 18, 27.

And surely the German will be given the number 11 shirt.

The number 11 was most recently worn by Andre Santos, who was released this summer. Ozil would be quite a step up.

Previous players to wear the Arsenal number 11 shirt include Nicolas Anelka, Robin van Persie, Sylvain Wiltord, and Mark Overmars.

Ozil wore 10 at Real Madrid, but at his previous club Werder Bremen he wore number 11.

Do you expect Ozil to get the 11 shirt? Will you be buying a replica with his name on?
