Rumours are rife that Arsenal might be considering a switch to Adidas as there kit supplier when the Puma deal expires next summer. @DarrenArsenal1 reckons there’s £50m a year on the table, which would be a hefty jump, no doubt predicated on our trophy-laden last 4 years.

Adidas does raise the bar though. A proper kit maker, with trendy sub-brands for the hipster fans.

We also have the added benefit of the club being able to bring back the bruised banana kit, which will make the German firm their money back in a season.
