Arsenal’s current contract with Puma expires at the end of the season and from next season onwards the Gunners will enter into a deal with Adidas.
Last October, Arsenal had announced that they had signed a £300 million kit deal with Adidas following which Adidas CEO Kasper Rorsted had said:
“When we look upon the Arsenal brand, it’s a stellar global brand that’s been underperforming in the last couple of years,
“We believe that long-term there is so much upside in Arsenal. Football is by far the single biggest sport in the world.”
And now the first images of Arsenal’s kit for 2019/20 has been leaked online(possibly).
While many people are debating the authenticity of the images but most of the fans seem to have taken a liking towards the alleged new Arsenal’s kit.

Yes, the fans do like the red home kit but what has really caught the eye is the yellow away kit as many people feel this ‘Bruised Banana’ look will be the best seller.
That away kit is an instant purchase

Wow love the retro look taking it back to the George Graham era

After the initial hype has settled down around Arsenal’s kit for 2019/20, it looks like the two images are nothing but a recreation of some concept designs.
The kits were designed by Rupert who is a kit designer based out of Milan, Italy and it looks like someone just went out and printed those designs.
But at this moment, we are pretty sure that these designs have not been made by Adidas.
