Emirates Outside Night

Arsenal have revealed new signing Mathieu Debuchy's squad number.

Matheu Debuchy will wear the number two shirt next season for Arsenal, the club have confirmed.

Arsenal revealed this via their official Instagram page, shortly after the deal was announced earlier on Thursday evening.

"#WelcomeDebuchy, here's your squad number. Revealed first on the #Arsenal @instagram account. #coyg #afc"

The number two shirt was previously worn by Abou Diaby, which was presented to him when he was signed, having been vacant since Lee Dixon retired.

Diaby is instead expected to wear the number 24 shirt next season.

Arsenal's previous signing Alexis Sanchez also shifted another player out of his spot, when he took Nacho Monreal's 17 shirt. Monreal will now wear 18.
