The new Arsenal home kit from Adidas is nothing less than a thing of beauty. While the Gunners are yet to officially release their kits for next season, a picture of their new home kit being displayed in Arsenal’s flagship store The Armoury has been doing the rounds recently.

The Adidas Deal

At £60 million-per-season, Arsenal’s deal with German sportswear manufacturer Adidas  is one of the most lucrative in world football, and among the biggest in England.

Last time Arsenal wore Adidas was in the 1993/94 season and this association might bring back fond memories of their iconic Adidas kit that the side wore during the 1988/89 title win, when the league was won at Anfield in the final minutes of the season.

Massive gaffe in one of the Arsenal kits at The Armoury

Eagle-eyed fans have spotted a grave error in the picture with the jersey of Lucas Torreira having his name spelt wrong.

Lucas T-O-R-R-E-I-R-A was spelled Lucas ‘T-O-R-R-I-E-R-A’, a mistake we have witnessed about an year ago. Previously it was the Gunners’ official website that made the same embarrassing mistake but were quick to repent it.

The 23-year-old Uruguayan, who played for Pescara and Sampdoria prior to joining Arsenal last summer, will look to cement his position in Unai Emery’s starting 11 after a season full of struggles in London.

The holding midfielder was Arsenal’s fourth signing under Emery who continues to strengthen his squad.

Next season will be a big one for the Gunners as they look very likely to seal a spot in the Champions League, with Manchester United going through a phase of transition and Sarri’s departure from Chelsea who are already facing a transfer ban.
