Arsenal have revealed that new signing Sead Kolasinac will wear the No. 31 shirt next season.
The former Schalke defender joined the club on a free transfer earlier this month, becoming the Gunners’ first signing of the summer.
He will now take over the shirt from youngster Jeff Reine-Adelaide, having previously worn the No. 6 at Schalke, which is obviously Laurent Koscielny’s number.

Kolasinac is expected to be the club’s first-choice left-back next season and has already revealed he has followed the club for some years.
“It feels really good and I’m pleased to be here,” Kolasinac told the club’s official website.
“I’m happy to have signed at Arsenal for five years and I’m really pleased.
“Arsenal has a huge tradition and I followed the club as a young boy, in the days of Jens Lehmann and Thierry Henry.”
Still just 24 and having arrived on a free, Kolasinac looks a superb signing for Arsenal and the club look to strengthen this summer.
