Chelsea confirm Saul Niguez's squad number

02 September 2021 05:00

Chelsea midfielder Saul Niguez will wear number 17 for the Blues this season during his loan from Atletico Madrid, which was finalised late on transfer deadline day.

The number 17 shirt, once worn by Eden Hazard between 2012 and 2014, became vacant over the summer when Mateo Kovacic swapped it for the number eight jersey he now wears.
