It looks like we may have confirmation of the official Arsenal home kit for next season after the strip was spotted on sale in a Puma shop.

The store is in Macau, China and looks very similar to the most recent "leaked Arsenal kit" that was all over Twitter a few weeks ago.

You'd be forgiven for remaining pretty skeptical considering these are on sale in China, where cheap knock-off Premier League kits are everywhere. But this one was reportedly on sale in an official Puma store, the kit makers for next season's Arsenal shirt.

Alongside the shirt, you can also see the training kits for next season, which come in blue, red and yellow. They're not the nicest gear we've ever seen, and we're not big fans of the red and white sleeve combo on the Premier League shirt itself.

The official launch date is July 10th though, and it's drawing ever nearer so fans don't have to wait too long.

The deal

Arsenal signed a "long-term partnership" with Puma back in January, and the deal kicks in from July 1st this year. From then, Nike will no longer be Arsenal's official kit supplier.

The American sportswear company have sponsored the Gunners for the best part of 20 years, but Puma's deal is worth £150m - or £30m a year. Too good to turn down I guess.

Arsenal transfer situation

With the kit sorted, all Arsenal need to get now is the players to wear it. A striker remains a top priority, with Olivier Giroud short of competition for the starting berth up front.

The French international needs another top-class forward pushing him for his place if Wenger is to get the best out of him, and if Arsenal are going to seriously challenge for the Premier League title.

Wenger, who is currently in Brazil working as a TV pundit, has his eye on Croatian international Mario Mandzukic, who could be available for £19m following Bayern Munich's capture of Robert Lewandowski.
