Arsenal have revealed their new home kit for next season, with Gabriel Martinelli given a brand new squad number.

Martinelli has played a more prominent role for Mikel Arteta’s side this term and continued to impress with a series of vibrant performances.

The 20-year-old, who currently wears the No.35 shirt, has registered five goals and five assists in the Premier League this season.

Martinelli’s progress has been rewarded with a new number, 11, with the shirt being made available on the Arsenal website.

The No.11 shirt has been worn most recently by Martin Odegaard, but before then, the likes of Mesut Ozil, Marc Overmars and Paul Merson.

Arsenal’s kit is in their typical white and red colours, while featuring a white collar with a striking red trim consisting of lightning bolts.

£5 from every new home shirt bought directly from the club ahead of the new season will go to the Arsenal Foundation to support local community initiatives.

‘We’re extremely proud of the work we’ve been doing to bring our community together and support the lives of people in our local area for more than 35 years,’ said Freddie Hudson, Head of Arsenal in the Community.

‘People are the heartbeat of our community and the £5 donation from our home shirt sales will provide vital support for the local projects that serve our diverse community in north London so well. 

‘The last couple of years have been especially tough and the impact continues to be felt, but it’s amazing what we can achieve when we all come together to support each other. We continue to draw inspiration from those who make the Arsenal family so special, and we’re thrilled to be able to give a little back in this unique way.’
