Arsenal’s announcement of squad number hints of a move for French forward
Arsenal appear to have given away a hint about the future of one of the club’s promising prospects through the announcement of new signing Sead Kolasinac’s squad number.
The 24-year-old’s move to the Emirates stadium on a free transfer was confirmed three weeks ago after months of speculation.
Kolasinac’s shirt number has now been revealed as #31 but that is the number which belonged to promising forward Jeff Reine-Adelaide.
The news of Arsenal’s new signing taking Reine-Adelaide’s number could mean the French youngster is set for a loan move before the campaign begins.
The 19-year-old recently deleted every previous post on his Instagram account to start afresh.
Lots of you have asked – here's the answer…
This is what @seadk6 will wear on his back in 2017/18

Reine-Adelaide, who joined the club during the summer of 2015, has been limited to appearances in the League Cup thus far.
With several other attacking options including Alex Iwobi and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain still on Arsenal’s books, the young forward is likely to head out for more playing time elsewhere.
