Arsenal 2022/2023: What are the new squad numbers, which numbers did Fabio Vieira and Gabriel Jesus receive?

The Gunners have confirmed their squad numbers for the upcoming 2022/2023 season

With the Premier League starting in just over three weeks, all clubs up and down the country are bolstering their squads as they prepare for a competitive season.

So far, Arsenal have had a great start to the window, signing players that should elevate them to the next level.

They missed out on Champions League football on the last day of the season to bitter rivals Tottenham after leading them in the league for so long.

With new signings also comes new numbers, with fans eager to get the new names on the back of their replica shirts..here is the full list of squad numbers for Arsenal in 2022/2023 season.

When does the Premier League start?

To accommodate for a long mid-season break, due to the World Cup being held in Qatar in November and December, the Premier League is starting a week prior to its usual start time, and will kick off on 5 August 2022, as Arsenal head to Crystal Palace.

The Gunners will hope to have better fortunes in south London this time, as the same fixture last year saw Arsenal lose 3-0.

What is the expectation for Arsenal this season?

Like last season, the minimum expectation should be Champions League. In hindsight, it was probably a mistake to let talisman Pierre Emerick Aubameyang midseason, as Arsenal struggled for goals and that’s what ultimately led to their failure in their pursuit of Champions League football.

But, once again, Arteta has been massively financially backed this summer window, and now has another creative midfielder in Vieira, and a true number nine in Gabriel Jesus.

It should be an exciting time for Arsenal fans, and this is now truly Arteta’s squad, one that he’s assembled (bar Bukayo Saka - who was bought through the academy under Unai Emery).

Are Arsenal targeting any other players?

Reports are emerging that Arsenal are closing in on the signing of Oleksandr Zinechenko from Manchester City.

Arteta will know the player well from his time as City’s assistant manager, and he has all the traits Arteta wants.

The Spaniard is trying to mould his side around the style of Pep Guardiola’s City, with Zinchenko’s ability to go forward, and his technical prowess being attractive to Arteta.

He would also provide good competition for Kieran Tierney, who has struggled with fitness issues during his time at Arsenal.
