Alex Iwobi handed Sanchez's no.17 shirt

Nigeria international and Arsenal forward Alex Iwobi will swap his No 45 shirt at the club for the 17 last worn by Chilean striker Alexis Sanchez.

Sanchez leaves the No 17 for Iwobi having inherited the iconic number 7 seven made available following the exit of Tomas Rosicky. Fans of Iwobi can pre-order the shirt 11 days prior to its official release on June 3.

The Puma number is made up of the Gunners’ traditional red and white colours, and it features a vertical stripe down the centre of the shirt which is a darker shade of red.

Other shirt details include a distinctive vertical stripe down the front, a heat transfer gothic A on the reverse of the neck and a stitched V-neck and PUMA’s iconic T7 Form Stripe running along each sleeve.

The accompanying shorts are white with a red band along the side and the socks are red with the white PUMA cat on the front and have a white fold over top.

The short-sleeved replica shirt is available for £55, while the long-sleeved version can be purchased for £60. The authentic match shirt, however, will cost a staggering £100.
