Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech will take the number one shirt at the club for the 2018-19 season.

Arsenal have confirmed that goalkeeper Petr Cech will take the number one shirt next season.

The former Chelsea shot-stopper had previously worn 33, but will now take the top spot, while Hector Bellerin has changed his squad number for the fourth time.

The right-back, who has been linked with a move away from the Emirates, will don the number two shirt after previously occupying 20, 39 and 24.

Following Per Mertesacker's retirement, Mohamed Elneny has now taken squad number four, while Granit Xhaka has switched from 29 to 34.

Meanwhile, reports have emerged claiming that former Paris Saint-Germain boss Unai Emery will be appointed as the club's new manager.
