Gonzalo Higuain’s deal to the Blues Chelsea FC is just hours away from being officially announced, after reaching an agreement regarding his transfer.
Gonzalo Higuain will be Chelsea’s number one striker, as he will be starting ahead of Oliver Giroud, and Alvaro Morata who will be leaving the Blues, according to reports.
However, Gonzalo Higuain’s number is a debatable topic, as many think that if he wears the number 9 shirt, he will be cursed, like the rest of the recent number 9 strikers at Chelsea.
Gonzalo Higuain will have several options to choose from once he arrives at Chelsea, and number 9 is one of them.
The available numbers right now are number 4, after the departure of Cesc Fabregas, number 14 and 16, after Bakayoko and Kennedy went on loans.
Moreover, number 23, Michy Batshuayi’s previous shirt number, is available where the Belgian striker is on loan at the Spanish club, CF Valencia.
In addition, some legendary numbers are available such as 26, John Terry’s number, and 25, where no one wore it since the departure of Gianfranco Zola.
Finally, number 19 is a good number recently after Diego Costa, Chelsea’s previous striker wore it and scored plenty with goals, unlike the number 9 shirt which many things it’s a curse.
