What number for Timo?
Updated: Jun 20, 2020
Timo Werner completes his move from RB Leipzig to Chelsea on June 18th pleasing many Chelsea fans that have long awaited the official announcement. It had been speculated for weeks that Werner was going to be playing at Stamford Bridge next year as reported by Tier 1 sources Matt Law and Fabrizio Romano. Now that his move is official, the German international will finish out the season with the Bundesliga side until the rest of the season.
Now that Werner has officially announced that he is coming to Chelsea, many fans wonder what kit number he’ll wear for the Blues. While at RB Leipzig, he sported the number eleven for the four years he’s played there and it looks like he will wear the same number at Chelsea next season.
Chelsea forward Pedro is rumored to leave at the end of the season for Serie A side Roma. The Spanish international has been sporting the number eleven during his time at Chelsea and it looks convenient that he leaves this summer for twenty-four year-old Werner.
It is reasonable to assume that Werner will wear the number eleven at a Chelsea as Pedro departs the club this summer.
