The talented English midfielder has wasted no time and has already joined his new teammates for pre-season training in Germany. As part of the formalities, Rice has been allocated his shirt number at Arsenal.
Rice will don the no.41 jersey for the Gunners, a change from his previous number at West Ham.
This decision was made to accommodate Rice’s personal preference, as he expressed a desire to wear the same number he had at his former club.
Arsenal supporters will be eager to see Rice in action, and they may not have to wait long.
The midfielder is in contention to make his debut in the upcoming pre-season friendly against Manchester United on July 22, providing an early glimpse of his abilities in an Arsenal shirt.
