Unai Emery will reap the rewards from Arsenal’s kit deal with Adidas, with the Gunners boss set for an increased transfer kitty.
The Times reports that some of the money from the £300 million deal will fall down to the club’s transfer budget.
As a result, Emery is expected to be given more freedom to spend bigger than in previous windows at the club.
The report claims that could happen as early as January, despite the deal not coming into play until the 2019-20 season.
Arsenal confirmed a five-year deal with Adidas at the start of the week, with excitement already growing among the supporters about the club’s new look.
The news adds to the feel-good factor surrounding the club at the moment, with the squad continuing to show that they are adapting to Emery’s style of play.
Arsenal moved into the top four over the weekend after their 5-1 thrashing of Fulham on Sunday afternoon.
The club’s decision to get back into a partnership with Adidas has been well received by supporters and former players, and Goal revealed in August that talks were already underway regarding new designs.
Ian Wright, who enjoyed many goal-laden years at Arsenal with three stripes on his shirt, welcomed the news back in the summer. He posted on social media: “So pleased Adidas are back sponsoring after this coming season. Especially after seeing what Puma have come up with.”
