Romelu Lukaku's Jersey Number Finally Confirmed

Chelsea's new Belgium signee has had his shirt number confirmed by Chelsea Football Club's official handle.

Lukaku was initially given the No.18 jersey upon his return to Stamford Bridge from Inter last week, but has now inherited Abraham's number following the England striker's permanent move to Stadio Olimpico.

However the 28 years old Belgian international will wear the number 9 Jersey after the departure of Tammy Abraham to José Mourihno's Roma in a €40M permanent transfer. The new Chelsea striker according to Thomas Tuchel will likely make a debute against London based Arsenal Football Club on Sunday, having already been integrated into full training with Thomas Tuchel's squad at the start of the week.

"Can I say it? Yes, I have the No.9. I am happy and fortunate to be in this situation. It's going to be a tough game but we will prepare ourselves for a battle" Lukaku told the press.
