Arsenal will reportedly end their 20-year association with Nike next summer after agreeing a lucrative deal with Puma that will see the Gunners wear the branded kit of the German sportswear giants from 2014/15.

The north London club are reported to have struck a contract worth a whopping £30 million-a-season, dwarfing the £8 million Arsenal receive from Nike each year, and making it the highest deal of its kind in English football.

Manchester United had previously held the record with a yearly income of £25.4 million from Nike - despite some inaccurate suggestions that Liverpool had surpassed their rivals when swapping to Warrior Sports this term.

Last season's champions Manchester City, meanwhile, have also recently agreed a new deal that will see them change from Umbro to Nike, but the Etihad Stadium club will rake in less than half of Arsenal's per annum fee.

Arsenal may be soon be enjoying supremacy in the Premier League when it comes to kit deals, but the Gunners fail to top the charts when it comes to the giants of Europe.
