According to Footy Headlines – a reliable source for kit news – Adidas will mark their Arsenal return by releasing a modern interpretation of our cult classic ‘bruised banana’ shirt.
As was the case in the mid-90s, the kit will be yellow and blue and feature red as an accent colour.
As things stand, no images have been leaked, but hopefully, they’ll follow soon enough. We could do with something to get excited about!
As an added bonus, there’s also talk of Adidas doing a retro Gunners range, inspired by other old kits.
The Gunners confirmed the upcoming Adidas kit deal with a single tweet in October.

It’s believed the package is worth £300 million – £60 million a season for five years – which is double the figure currently earned from Puma.
Out current Puma deal runs out at the end of June, and given the last set of kits they’ve foisted upon us nobody is going to shed too many tears about that.
We can safely assume that our Adidas collection will then be released in July.
