Vitor Roque has arrived in Barcelona and will shortly be presented as the newest member of Xavi’s side before La Liga resumes in January.
The club will also confirm which number the attacker will wear and there are a few available right now. Ansu Fati’s No. 10, the 12, 16, 19 and 24 are all currently free at Barca.
Vitor Roque wore the No. 9 most recently at Athletico Paranaense but also took on the 27 and 39 before then.
Barcelona’s No. 9 shirt is currently worn by Robert Lewandowski, meaning Vitor Roque will have to change at his new club.
The most likely option seems to be the No. 19. Indeed Gerard Romero seems pretty convinced that it’s a done deal already and Vitor Roque will take on the shirt this season.
The number was most recently worn by Franck Kessie but has also been taken by Ferran Torres and Sergio Aguero in recent seasons.
A certain Lionel Messi also wore 19 earlier in his career at Barcelona.
