Chelsea Hands Sterling, Koulibaly, Gallagher, Chukwuemeka And Broja New Jersey Numbers

Fans spend weeks speculating about numbers for their favorite new players throughout preseason; although we’ve known Kalidou Koulibaly’s number for a few days now. The club’s number release ahead of every upcoming Premier League campaign acts as an indicator of sorts.

Tuchel and every Blues boss before him carries a bloated squad along with him during the preseason tour. These returning loanees, new signings and youth stars remain with the first team for a number of weeks before being designated for their newest assignments.

New signings Kalidou Koulibaly and Raheem Sterling’s squad numbers for the upcoming season have now been confirmed.

The duo, summer arrivals from Napoli and Manchester City respectively, have been handed the number 26 (Koulibaly) and the number 17 (Sterling), just as they wore throughout our pre-season campaign.

Conor Gallagher, back at the Blues following a successful loan spell at Crystal Palace, takes the number 23 shirt that he wore during his stint at Selhurst Park.

Armando Broja will wear the number 18 for this season, while our latest signing Carney Chukwuemeka has been handed the number 30 shirt.
