Coach of Chelsea Antonio Conte has formally integrated two new players into his first team squad at Chelsea after confirming their shirt number ahead of next season campaign.
Per an announcement on the official website of the club, it was announced that new goalkeeper signing Willy Caballero will wear the number 1 shirt vacated by Asmir Begovic, while Charly Musonda will dorn the number 17 jersey.
Furthermore the Premier League have granted permission for the shirt name of Musonda to be Musonda Jr. The handing of shirt number to the duo means three players including Antonio Rudiger who will wear the number 2 jersey have been added to the squad for next season.
The omission of Kenneth Omeruo from the list of players handed first team squad number could mean his future lies outside the club despite teaming up with the first team in training.
Already the club has received an offer from Turkish side Goztepe, but they are hanging on for a fee in excess of €7m for the Nigeria international who spent last season on loan to Alanyaspor.
