Timo Werner could get his preferred shirt number at Chelsea once summer transfer is sealed
Danny Drinkwater has been taking the number six number recently, but he has been out on loan to Burnley and Aston Villa and is unlikely to be part of the future plans.
This number could be hot property once again this summer if Willian does leave the club when his contract runs out.
Werner could ask for it, however Callum Hudson-Odoi, Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic could all lay claim to taking it
Another number which might be free is Pedro’s number 11, with the Spaniard another set to leave when his contract expires.
However, once again it’s a number which would be hot property for Chelsea’s new signings – especially Werner.
The German currently wears the shirt number at RB Leipzig, and he could well demand the same once his move to Stamford Bridge is completed.
Werner has worn No 11 since moving to Leipzig in 2016, and it could be an option again at Chelsea – despite it currently being occupied.
Pedro has sported that number on his back since 2016 but is out of contract at the end of the season
