Arsenal star playmaker Mesut Ozil has taken to social media to show off his new No.10 jersey.

The 29-year-old was handed the No.10 shirt by Arsenal following Jack Wilshere’s departure over the summer.

Ozil played with the No.10 shirt for the Germany national team and for Real Madrid.

The Gunners take on the reigning Premier League champions Manchester City on Sunday afternoon. Kick-off is scheduled for 16:00 (GMT).
