Tired of reading? Click through the gallery above to see 10 stars who wore the No. 9 jersey for the Blues.

According to Transfermarkt, all the players in the gallery above have worn the number during their time at the London club, and some were certainly more successful than others.

One of them was former Italy striker and Stamford Bridge legend Gianluca Vialli. The Italian joined the club in 1996 on a free transfer from Juventus. The forward was brought in by Ruud Gullit and managed to win the FA Cup in his first season in England. A few months later, he won the League Cup, the UEFA Cup Winners Cup and the UEFA Super Cup

The iconic number was also worn by famous Dutchman Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink. The frontman was signed for a then club record fee of £15 million (R253 million) in 2000, which marked his second stint in England. Hasselbaink won no major titles at the club, but did make 161 appearances for them, scoring 77 goals.

The No. 9 jersey was also worn Spaniard Fernando Torres, who was handed the number back in 2011 after making a £50 million (R845 million) move from Liverpool. The forward had a tough time at the London club, but did win three major honours while there: the 2011/12 FA Cup, the 2011/12 UEFA Champions League and the 2012/13 UEFA Europa League titles.
