Arsenal set for colour switch-up as away kit for next season leaks online

New direction.

We don’t know all that much about what Arsenal will look like next season.

Will Alexis Sanchez still be ripping up defences? Will Arsene Wenger even be in charge? Will the quest for their first Premier League title in over a decade finally come to an end?

Who knows?

One thing we do know, however, is what the players will be wearing on matchdays.

Arsenal’s kits for the 2017/18 season have leaked online and, courtesy of football strip aficionados FootyHeadlines, we’ve been given a glimpse of what to expect.

The Gunners, Wenger or not, will predictably remain faithful to their classic red and white design although kit designer Puma are set to try out a darker shade of red on the new shirt.

There is something of a switch-up when it comes to the away shirt, however, as Arsenal are expected to ditch the yellow and grey number that the players currently sport on away days in favour of a blue look.

The away jersey for the 2017/18 season will feature two shades of blue in a gradient design with a crew neck collar. The shorts and socks for the away kit are understood to be dark blue.

Not too shabby, eh?
