Chelsea have been linked with a move for £54million rated Sevilla defender Jules Kounde following the signing of Romelu Lukaku earlier this week.
If the Blues were to complete any more deals before the window slams shut at the end of this month, then Chelsea fans may wonder what shirt number the new addition(s) would wear.
Let’s takes a look at what numbers are currently available to Jules Kounde and possibly any other new signings should they arrive this month.
The numbers 17, 18, 23, 25, 26, 30, 31 and 32 are all free at this moment in time.
The No. 8 was also free until this summer, when Croatian playmaker Mateo Kovacic switched from his previous number 17 to don the famous shirt previously worn by Chelsea icon Frank Lampard.
Furthermore, No. 15 could become available soon as Zouma, who current dons that jersey, has been linked to West Ham United in recent weeks.
