During his time in the Premier League with Arsenal, the 33-year-old wore the number 14 shirt.

Aubameyang wore the number nine at Saint Etienne and Dijon in France.

Last month, Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel, claimed “nobody wants to touch” the club’s No. 9 shirt amid fears it may be cursed.

Gonzalo Higuain, Alvaro Morata, Radamel Falcao and Fernando Torres all arrived at Stamford Bridge and struggled to meet expectations after inheriting the shirt.
