Joao Felix will wear the number 11 shirt for Chelsea during his loan spell at Stamford Bridge.

The Portuguese forward, who wears the same number for his nation, has signed on-loan from Spanish side Atletico Madrid and will join up with the Blues immediately. 

The 23-year-old wore the No.7 shirt for Diego Simeone’s side in Spain but given that is currently occupied by N’Golo Kante, he has chosen to take the vacant No.11 shirt. 

The last Chelsea player to wear that number was Timo Werner, who departed the club last summer. 

Felix has signed until the end of the 2022/23 season and will train with his fellow team-mates this week ahead of our all-London matches with Fulham and Crystal Palace.
