Arsenal youngster Jack Wilshere is set to be handed Robin van Persie's No10 shirt.

Wilshere will be named Arsenal’s new No 10 on Friday — taking the shirt of imminent Manchester United signing Van Persie.

The England midfielder, who has been on the sidelines for over 12 months due to a clutch of injuries, will wear the shirt vacated by former hero Van Persie — and previously worn by Dennis Bergkamp.
