The German, whose future at the club remains in question with 18 months left on his contract, has reiterated his desire for the currently vacant shirt

Mesut Ozil has again hinted at his want for Arsenal's No.10 shirt following Jack Wilshere's loan move to Bournemouth.

The German playmaker has worn the No.11 since arriving from Real Madrid for a club-record fee in 2013, with Wilshere handed No.10 when Robin van Persie left for Manchester United 12 months earlier.

Ozil took up the No.10 shirt for Germany following Lukas Podolski's international retirement last year and now, with Wilshere spending the 2016-17 season at the Vitality Stadium, has reiterated his desire to swap shirts.

"Since Wilshere’s departure last summer, the number is free, but I have yet to get it," he told Kicker.
