Arsenal have announced that new goalkeeper Bernd Leno will wear the number 19 shirt for the Gunners following his £19m from Bayer Leverkusen last month.

Arsenal typically reveal squad numbers for new players immediately or at least very soon after the signing has been confirmed by the club, but Leno has had to wait three weeks for his.

It had led to murmurings among some supporters that the delay could be as a result of the club trying to offload veteran stopper Petr Cech, whose form began to deteriorate last season.

Cech traded his number 33 shirt for the number one jersey as part of several changes in the squad soon after the 2017/18 campaign ended. Had the 36-year-old been due to leave, it would have freed up the number one shirt Leno, but that is now not the case.
