EPL: Thomas Partey to get new Arsenal shirt number. Arsenal midfielder, Thomas Partey, is set to be handed a new shirt number next season, Citisports reports.
Partey wore the number 18 shirt last season for Arsenal.
The Ghana international joined the Gunners from Atletico Madrid last summer.
The 28-year-old will now wear the number 5 shirt next season.
Partey wanted the number 5 jersey upon signing for the North London club, but it was already taken by Sokratis Papastathopoulos, who joined Olympiakos last January.
Meanwhile, speaking on his first season at Arsenal, Partey recently told Ghana’s TV3: “Well I think everybody has seen it, there has been ups and downs.
“We have had good times and bad times, but this is my first season and I think I had to adapt to how they play, get used to my teammates.”
