Bukayo Saka Happy to take over Arsenal No7 Jersey

Arsenal whizkid Bukayo Saka is delighted to have taken the No7 shirt.

The iconic shirt number was previously worn by Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who has spent the 2019/20 campaign on loan at Roma, but it’s unlikely he will need it back as the Serie A club have also reached a preliminary agreement with Arsenal to keep the 31-year-old next season.
