Arsenal may well be set to change jersey suppliers from Nike to Adidas as early as 2013, in line with reports from Twitter.
An adidas employee posted “#Adidas to become the new jersey provider of #Arsenal soccer Club as early as 2013/14.

Arsenal have long been rumoured to own been eyeing up a lot of lucrative business deals, from each provider and lead jersey sponsors, and adidas – who have recently lost Liverpool to Warrior, however gained Sunderland from Umbro – will surely work the bill.
Adidas created no secret that their upset Liverpool was finished out of alternative at their end, due partly to the club’s lack of league success and European exposure not creating up for his or her hefty asking value, thus a upset Arsenal will surely work the bill because of their Champions League ever-presence.
The only party the deal wouldn’t create sense for is Nike. Despite deals with Manchester United and Aston Villa over the last term – and a replacement upset current Champions Manchester town set to begin in 2013 – Arsenal have continually been Nike’s ‘go-to’ club within the Premier League.
Arsenal players are continually amongst the primary to receive new Nike soccer boots for testing, and Nike have a hugely-successful campaign in place that uses their own complete to boost the profile of Arsenal, with events like last year’s one hundred and twenty fifth Anniversary celebrations being handled nearly solely by Nike, thanks partly to their 20-year association with the North London club.
