Arsenal's new home and away kits for next season were leaked on Wednesday and, if they're real, it looks like Adidas have absolutely smashed it.

Adidas, who signed with the Gunners in a five-year deal worth £300m, have gone for a classic vibe with both strips.

While the home shirt features a red and white striped v-neck collar, the yellow away shirt takes inspiration from the iconic away strip worn by Arsenal between 1991 and 1993.

Below is an image of Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang supposedly wearing the new home and away shirts, which has been confirmed by the reliable Footy Headlines.

Stunning. Puma have been supplying Arsenal's kits since 2014/15 but fans have never been overly keen on their designs.

Before that there was Nike, who sponsored the Gunners for two decades and were always pretty reliable when it came to making smart strips.

And so, to mark the end of Puma's reign and Arsenal's new partnership with Adidas, we've ranked their 10 nicest kits from the last 10 years purely based on looks.

10. 09/10 THIRD

OK, so it's the same colour as Spurs and that's always dangerous territory, but Arsenal's third kit from 2009/10 was very smart with its white base and maroon pinstripes.

9. 15/16 AWAY

Puma went bold with Arsenal's 2015/16 away kit by combining gold and navy blue with a diamond pattern - and it worked.

8. 16/17 THIRD

Neon yellow isn't a colour you often see on football kits, so credit to Puma for trying it with navy blue for Arsenal's 2016/17 third strip. Very striking.

7. 18/19 HOME

Arsenal's first home kit with Puma as their sponsors was well received by Gooners, though it has to be said the hooped socks definitely helped.

6. 17/18 AWAY

Arsenal had a terrible record in their electric blue away kit for the 2017/18 season - the 4-0 defeat against Liverpool at Anfield sticks in the memory - but it was a lovely colour regardless.

5. 09/10 AWAY

Basically the same design as the 2009/10 third kit at No.10, yet navy blue with light blue pinstripes and a collar worked better.

4. 17/18 HOME

p1dbicojlb1e5i1b6e1ouaf6o13rkv.jpg

Arsenal's nicest home kit with Puma was for the 2017/18 season, which simply combined a red body with white sleeves and a collar. Classy.

3. 13/14 AWAY

Arsenal have a rich history of yellow away kits and 2013/14 followed that trend with a smart number that, again, featured a collar.

2. 12/14 HOME

p1dbicpgmvj6i17af1reql7i1ijn13.jpg

Arsenal wore this home kit for two seasons and you can hardly blame them. It proved a lucky charm as the Gunners won the 2014 FA Cup to end their trophy drought.

1. 17/18 THIRD

p1dbicq5i11d1b7fi8sr10tc1egs15.jpg

Arsenal had never worn black or pink prior to the 2017/18 season, but Puma took a risk with the third kit and the end product was stunning. It deserved to be worn more often.
