Mesut Ozil demanding new shirt number from this Arsenal teammate...

Mesut Ozil is demanding a change of shirt number at Arsenal.

The Daily Star Sunday says he has told Arsenal he wants Jack Wilshere's No10 shirt.

The German ace has just secured the number for his country after it was vacated by Lukas Podolski's international retirement.

And it's free at The Emirates too - albeit on a temporary basis - after Wilshere joined Bournemouth on loan.

Ozil has admitted in the past: "Of course I have previously given those in charge [at Arsenal] a signal.

"The number is right for me and my position as a playmaker.

"For me, the number means a lot.

"It's my favourite number."

Ozil has worn 11 at The Emirates since his move from Real Madrid in 2013.
