Arsenal forward Gabriel Martinelli might be changing shirt numbers ahead of the 2022/23 season. 

The Brazilian international has been donning the number 35 shirt since he joined from Ituano, but could be taking over the famous number 11 shirt.

This was revealed on Thursday morning as the Gunners launched their new kit for the upcoming season.

Uruguayan midfielder Lucas Torreira had previously been given no.11 but he has spent the last two seasons out on loan and looks set to seal a permanent move away from the Emirates Stadium this summer.

Robin van Persie, Mesut Ozil, Ray Parlour, and Carlos Vela are some of the notable Gunners to wear the number 11 shirt.

The club further revealed that £5 from every new home shirt bought directly through the club ahead of the new season will go to The Arsenal Foundation to support local community initiatives.

The new kit will first be worn on Sunday as the Gunners play Everton in the last match of the 2021/22 season.
