Transfer News: Possible Shirt Number Lukaku Could Wear If He Eventually Complete Chelsea Transfer
The possible shirt number for Romelu Lukaku after transfer
Chelsea could end up having the perfect jersey number for Romelu Lukaku after the Belgium international reportedly informed Inter Milan he wants to return to the Stamford Bridge. The Blues have moved quickly in their attempt to secure the signature of Romelu after turning their attention away from Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland.
Romelu Lukaku spent three years as a Chelsea footballer between 2011 and 2014 but had two loan spells away from the Stamford bridge before leaving on a permanent deal.
Romelu wore the No 18 jersey during his first spell at the Stamford bridge. However, he could secure his preferred number 9 once he completes his return. The Inter Milan ace has donned the number nine at both Manchester United and Inter Milan, as well as Belgium.
The No 9 jersey at Chelsea is presently occupied by Tammy Abraham but his future emerges to be away from the club. The English Premier league club Arsenal are showing interest in signing him, who fell out of favour under Thomas Tuchel last campaign.
