The Gunners showed off their latest adidas number on social media, which features two shades of blue patterned across the front of the shirt, which are thought to resemble lightning bolts.
In describing their kit, Arsenal kept it short and sweet, simply saying:
“The nineties return like a bolt from the blue”

The Gunners travel to newly-promoted Brentford on Friday to kick off the upcoming Premier League season, where they will reportedly be wearing their new third strip.
Arsenal are coming off of a poor pre-season, which has seen them lose to Rangers, Chelsea and Tottenham as well as slumping to a draw with Hibernian amidst wins against Millwall and Watford.
With a squad overhaul promised, little has been forthcoming so far, and only three new players have walked through the doors of The Emirates Stadium.
