Adidas are planning to bring back the classic ‘Bruised Banana’ away kit for Arsenal’s 2019/20 season, according to a recent leak.

FootyHeadlines report that Adidas are going to recreate the classic away kit ‘in a modern way’ for Arsenal next season. The shirt will be predominantly yellow with navy, and the Adidas logo and trims will be red.

FootyHeadlines put a graphic together for illustrative purposes, but note this isn’t the final design:

There’s also a release date of July 2019, as that’s when Arsenal’s current deal with Puma expires. As usual, we’ll have to wait a while before getting the official announcement for something we’ll have already seen long before then.

Every year, FootyHeadlines seems to get access to inside information about the new kits before they’re released, so they’ve become a pretty reliable source at this stage. Hopefully, they’ll be able to share a prototype of the full modernised shirt in the coming months.

Arsenal fans will be excited to find out what design their new manufacturer goes with for the home kit and third kit as well. For now, it’s good to get confirmation that one of the popular shirts from the past is going to make a comeback.
