Arsenal frontman Robin Van Persie has asked for his squad number to be changed for the new 2010/11 season, it has emerged.
The Dutchman, who will be playing in his first World Cup final on Sunday, is believed to want the number 10 made vacant by William Gallas ahead of the new season, becoming the first attacking player to take that number since Arsenal legend and countryman Dennis Bergkamp retired in 2006.
Bergkamp took Van Persie under his wing when the latter made his move from Feyernoord as a 20 year old and now he could be set to take the famous number 10 of his former mentor.
Check here for details on how to change your order if you have already pre-ordered a van Persie #11 kit for next season.
