Shirt numbers available to Antoine Griezmann at Arsenal

:Headline: Shirt numbers available to Antoine Griezmann at Arsenal:
Amid reports linking Antoine Griezmann with a move to Arsenal, Sports Mole looks at the shirt numbers that could be available to the forward in London.

Arsenal are reportedly weighing up a shock swoop for Barcelona attacker Antoine Griezmann during the summer transfer window.

The 29-year-old has failed to register a goal or assist in Barca's last nine outings in La Liga, and Griezmann barely had any time to make an impact against Atletico Madrid as he was brought on in the dying minutes of that 2-2 draw on Tuesday.

As a result, speculation has intensified linking Griezmann with a move away from Camp Nou - despite penning a five-year deal until 2024 upon his arrival from Atletico Madrid last summer.

With that in mind, Sports Mole looks at the shirt numbers that could be available to Griezmann if he were to sign for the Gunners.


Griezmann's choice of shirt at the Emirates could be a relatively straightforward decision - the '7' has been left vacant in North London since Henrikh Mkhitaryan's loan move to Roma.

Roma are understood to have a preliminary agreement in place for Mkhitaryan to remain in Serie A for the 2020-21 campaign, which would allow Griezmann to don the number 7 jersey which he wore for both Real Sociedad and Atletico.

However, it remains to be seen if the '7' would weigh too heavy on the shoulders of Griezmann, with a host of Gunners legends such as Liam Brady, David Rocastle, Michael Thomas, Robert Pires and Tomas Rosicky all sporting the jersey down the years.

Griezmann was handed the number 17 shirt upon his arrival at Barcelona - one which is currently occupied by Arsenal new boy Cedric Soares and therefore unlikely to be relinquished so soon.

If Griezmann were to make the switch to the Emirates this summer, that could spell trouble for Mesut Ozil, who has not featured for Arsenal since the Premier League resumed in June.

Griezmann's versatilty up front means that he could start in the attacking midfield role under Mikel Arteta, and the 29-year-old may therefore be handed the famed '10' if Ozil does seek pastures new.
