​Chelsea award new signing Kante No. 7 shirt

New Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante will wear the vacant No.7 shirt at the club next season, the Blues have confirmed.

Ahead of his arrival at Chelsea's pre-season camp in the USA later this week, Chelsea have announced that will wear the No.7 jersey next season and, in doing so, take up Ramires' previous shirt number.

The Brazilian wore the No.7 Chelsea jersey for six seasons before vacating it following his departure from the club in January.
