Mesut Ozil shirt number Arsenal Jack Wilshere

Mesut Ozil has been given the No 10 shirt at Arsenal for the up and coming season after the departure of Jack Wilshere.

The club have previously had reservations over moving for Wilshere due to his injury history, but Pellegrini seems very keen on persuading him to become part of his new project at the London Stadium.

Having worn #10 at Real Madrid, the 29-year-old also wears the number on global duty with Germany.

But with Wilshere leaving on free transfer after allowing his contract to run down, Ozil has been given the opportunity to switch shirt numbers - something he was eager to do.

Ozil wears the No.10 shirt for his country, too.

China's Baidu set to launch self-driving buses
Under the agreement, a version of Baidu's Apolong autonomous mini bus will be exported to Japan from China in early 2019. Trials of the bus have been carried out in Fujian and Chongqing Municipality.

"It has never been a secret how special this number is to me", Ozil told the club's official website.

Arsenal also announced any fans who bought a 2018/19 season shirt with Ozil's No.11 number on the back will be sent a replacement.

Die Mannschaft, heavy favourites, crashed out of the 2018 FIFA World Cup at the group stages itself after losing two of their three games in Russian Federation as defending champions.

Arsenal finished sixth in 2017-18, 12 points behind fourth-placed Liverpool and 37 behind eventual champions Manchester City.

It remains to be seen how he will be utilised under new Arsenal manager Unai Emery, having been a key lieutenant under Arsene Wenger.
