Arsenal have agreed a significant deal with Adidas that will see the company replace Puma as the Gunners’ kit provider from next year, The Daily Mail states.
A new deal will see Arsenal earn £60m-a-year, providing a boost to the club’s finances and seeing a major improvement on the current deal with Puma that has been worth £30m-a-year for the past five years.
The Gunners agreement with Puma expires next year and rumours of a deal with Adidas have circulated for a while, with a fresh five-year deal with the new sponsors set to tie Arsenal down to a major injection of cash until 2024.
Arsenal’s last kit from Adidas ran until 1994, following a eight-year stint, with the north London giants then entering a long-term stint with Nike that ran from 1994 until 2014 before being replaced by Puma.
Honours won by Arsenal in Adidas kits include two first division titles, one league cup, one FA Cup and one UEFA Cup Winner’s Cup.
