Ben Chilwell Sets To Get His Dream Shirt Number At Chelsea.Chelsea 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.
Now Chilwell has joined, supporters have already seen the England international holding the Chelsea shirt at his unveiling.
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?
