Ben Chilwell To Get His Dream Shirt Number At Chelsea If……..

-

Ben Chilwell will get his dream shirt number at Chelsea if Marina Granovskaia seals £18m transfer.

 

SaveChelsea understands that the Blues have signed their first-choice left-back target.

Ben Chilwell was a name that has long been tipped to join Frank Lampard’s revolution and this week he finally became a Blues player in a deal worth a reported £50m.

As Chilwell has now joined, supporters have already seen the England international holding the Chelsea shirt at his unveiling – but what squad number could the left-back take at Stamford Bridge?

Since breaking into the first-team picture at Leicester, Chilwell has worn number 3 and 30 on the back of his shirt. At Chelsea, the incumbent no. 3 is Marcos Alonso, and the Spaniard has forced his way into Lampard’s plans since the 2019/20 campaign resumed.

The defender has been touted as someone who could be sold this summer, and latest reports claim he is a target for Sevilla.

According to the Express, the Europa League champions have set their sights on the left-back, and are willing to pay £18m for his services.

This means Chilwell could receive his favoured number if a decision is made to sell Alonso to Sevilla this summer

With that said, Chilwell did wear no.25 during a loan spell at Huddersfield. So, what other squad numbers will be available to the 23-year-old if he does sign for the Blues at some point in the summer?

Below, we take a look to see what numbers are currently free at Stamford Bridge.

No.10

Willian has now gone.

The player was out of contract at the end of the 2019/2020 season and has since completed his move to London rivals Arsenal following months of speculation regarding his future.

No.11

The No.11 is also currently up for grabs with Pedro sealing a free transfer to AS Roma.

No.25

Although the No.25 shirt has not been officially retired by the club, it seems that Chelsea do not want anyone to take on Gianfranco Zola’s famous number.

Departing for his home country back in 2003, nobody at the club has worn the shirt since the Italian maestro departed over a decade ago.

No.26

As is the case with the No.25 shirt, John Terry’s No.26 may well be left vacant following his trophy-laden spell at Stamford Bridge.

No.27

Andreas Christensen’s move to the no.4 has left the no.27 vacant.

No.30

This became vacant when David Luiz joined Arsenal in the summer.

It’s a squad number that has been worn by the likes of Yossi Benayoun, Tiago and Jesper Gronjkaer in the past.

No.32

The No.32 shirt has been vacant following Marco Amelia’s departure in 2016.

Andreas Christensen, the club’s current No.4, had worn the number during the 2012/13 season.
