Barcelona confirmed on Sunday that Antoine Griezmann will wear the No. 17 shirt at the club next season.

The French forward wore the No. 7, which belongs to Philippe Coutinho, during his time at Atletico but will swap numbers after making the switch to the Camp Nou.

Jeison Murillo wore the No. 17 last season after arriving on loan from Valencia in the January transfer window, but he has since moved on to Italian side Sampdoria.

Other players to have worn the 17 at Barcelona include Paco Alcacer, Munir, Pedro, Mark van Bommel and Emmanuel Petit.

Griezmann was officially unveiled as a Barcelona player on Sunday after undertaking a medical and signing his five-year deal with the club.
