Arsenal considering mega-money kit swap with Adidas set to replace Puma

Date Posted,August 7, 2017

Arsenal are eyeing a switch of kit manufacturer, despite their deal with Puma still having two years left to run.

The Gunners agreed a £150million contract with the German firm in 2014, following a 20-year association with Nike.

At the time, the deal was widely hailed, with Puma confirming it was the biggest ever for both itself and Arsenal.

But the £30milllion-a-year deal has since been dwarfed by Premier League rivals.

Reports have suggested the Gunners are looking elsewhere, and Mirror Football understands that club officials are indeed already eyeing a switch that would get them back on the same level as their rivals.

Chelsea signed a £900million, 15-year kit deal with Nike – worth £60million annually – last October, while Manchester United are into the third year of their £750million deal with Adidas.

Adidas have lost Chelsea to Nike, who also added Tottenham to a stable of English sides already including Manchester City.

With Arsenal eyeing more than double their current deal – believing the figures currently involved at the Emirates are well below market value – Adidas are in pole position. Puma do have a right to renegotiate first however.

Adidas has reinvented one of the most legendary kit designs in German football history to bring it back to the stadium and to the street.

Chelsea bought themselves out of their contract with Adidas to switch to Nike ahead of the new campaign, and there is a possibility that Arsenal could do something similar – if the figures add up.

Gunners stars Mesut Ozil, Danny Welbeck and Theo Walcott are all already sponsored by the German giants.
