Chelsea have today announced the squad numbers for the upcoming Premier League season.

It was always going to be interesting to see what numbers were given to the new signings who have joined the club, as well as someone the big numbers that were vacated after their owners moved on.

Enzo Fernandez will now be the Number 8 going into next season, meanwhile Mykhailo Mudryk will take the responsibility of the number 10.

After Kalidou Koulibaly’s underwhelming efforts with it last season, Levi Colwill will look to bring the pride back to the Number 26 that John Terry made famous in West London.

The announcement did see a number of players not given a shirt number, most of which players that face uncertain futures.

Romelu Lukaku was not given a squad number, with him likely to be on the move to Juventus if a deal can be worked out that also includes Dusan Vlahovic.

No shirt number for Angelo Gabriel

However, one player who was signed this summer was not even handed a number, potentially confirming reports that he is set to go on loan for this season.

Angelo Gabriel joined for a fee of around £14m as another talented young star who the Blues expect to be key to their future.

He was handed plenty of minutes in pre-season too, where he impressed a lot predominantly on the right wing.

However, he does not currently have a minute going into next season.

It has been claimed that there is a loan move in his future, with Chelsea’s feeder club Strasbourg being mentioned as a potential landing spot.

The Blues have limited loan spots this season, however Angelo certainly has the promise to warrant filling one.
