What is Moises Caicedo's jersey number at Chelsea?


Chelsea Football Club has revealed the jersey number of its latest signing, Moises Caicedo from Brighton.

The Blues confirmed the Ecuadorian international as their latest player in a statement on their official announcement on Monday, August 14, 2023. The midfielder was given jersey number 25, which was previously worn by Blues legend Gianfranco Zola.

Moises Caicedo said he had to seek permission from Zola before he could take on the jersey number because he knew how important it was to the club.

"I am so proud to wear this number, I spoke to Gianfranco Zola and he gave me his blessings. I know how much this number means, I chose it because it is a very special number to me and my family. I want to create a lot of memories with this number at my back."

The 21-year-old is a major addition to this Chelsea squad, and it will give Enzo Fernandez the ability to play in an advanced position in the team. He made 43 appearances for the Seagulls during the 2022–23 season when they recorded their best-ever Premier League finish of sixth.
