Arda Turan to take No.7 shirt at Barcelona

Barcelona have revealed Arda Turan will wear the No.7 shirt as he prepares to make his debut against Espanyol in the Copa del Rey.

The Turkey international has been forced to watch from the sidelines following his summer move from Atletico Madrid due to Barca’s transfer ban, but is now eligible to play.

And the Camp Nou outfit have revealed the winger will take on the shirt vacated by Pedro after his move to Chelsea while fellow new signing Aleix Vidal will wear No.22.

Arda follows in the footsteps of David Villa, Luis Figo and Henrik Larsson, who have all worn the same jersey in recent years while Vidal takes the number left by Dani Alves after the Brazilian switched to No.6 for this season.
