Pictures of Arsenal striker pair Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette purportedly wearing the new Adidas home and away kit have been leaked.
It has not been confirmed that these are the real deal but this leaked photo of the Aubameyang wearing the yellow away kit, with Lacazette wearing the home jersey do look legitimate:

Adidas have agreed a £60m a year deal to take over from Puma as Arsenal’s kit manufacturer for the start of next season.
The last time the German firm made shirts for the Gunners was all the way back in 1994, 25 years ago, and the retro style of the two kits does look like they have gone back to their past for inspiration.
Aubameyang’s away shirt, in particular, is reminiscent of the strip that Arsenal wore between 1991 and 1993, which reports have suggested Adidas were keen on replicating with their new kit.
