Shirt numbers available to Adrien Rabiot at Arsenal

Sports Mole looks at the shirt numbers available for Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot at Arsenal.

Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot has reportedly indicated that he is open to joining Arsenal when the transfer window opens.

The Frenchman has struggled for starts since arriving at the Allianz Stadium from Paris Saint-Germain as a highly-coveted free agent last summer.

Rabiot recently laughed off suggestions that he has gone on strike at Juve, but a move away from Turin this summer is looking increasingly likely.

Arsenal may now be at the front of the queue for the 25-year-old, despite rumoured interest from Premier League rivals Manchester United and Everton.

With that in mind, Sports Mole looks at the shirt numbers available to Rabiot should he make the switch to the Emirates Stadium.

Rabiot was handed the 25 shirt when joining Juventus last season, retaining the number that he wore in his final season with PSG.

That shirt is currently available at Arsenal, having been vacated since Carl Jenkinson's permanent departure last year.

That seems the most likely option for Rabiot, then, but what if the six-cap France international fancies switching things up?

Rabiot also held possession of '7', '6' and '8' at various points during his time at the Parc des Princes.

The latter of those jerseys belongs to Dani Ceballos, meaning that it could become available should the Spaniard return to parent club Real Madrid at the end of the season.

Numbers seven and six are vacant, meanwhile, with Henrikh Mkhitaryan in possession of the former before heading to Roma in a loan move that looks set to be made permanent.

The 12 and 13 shirts, previously held by Stephan Lichtsteiner and David Ospina respectively, are also both open for Rabiot.
