Arsenal are expected to draft in Henrikh Mkhitaryan from Manchester United, but what squad number will he wear at the Emirates?

The Armenian – who will move to London as Alexis Sanchez heads to Old Trafford – currently wears the No. 22 at United.

The Red Devils secured his signature from Borussia Dortmund and Mkhitaryan donned the No. 10 shirt in the Bundesliga.

He couldn’t wrestle that number off Zlatan Ibrahimovic at United and won’t be wearing it at Arsenal either.

Jack Wilshere currently wears No. 10 in the red half of north London and Jeff Reine-Adelaide has No. 22.

Mkhitaryan does have other options though.

The No. 15 shirt, which was previously worn by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, is free.

Theo Walcott’s £20m move to Everton has now been completed, so his old No. 14 is up for grabs.

Francis Coquelin has also left the club in recent days.

Valencia have acquired the combative midfielder which leaves his previous No. 35 jersey vacant.

Mkhitaryan could always grab Sanchez’s No. 7 top.
