The pair, whose futures remain uncertain, have helped to launch the Gunners’ new strip for the upcoming season

Arsenal have launched their new kit, with the help of Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil and Olivier Giroud, plus a few fans.

The Gunners unveiled their home strip, which is designed by Puma, on Wednesday, and it looks very similar to last season’s effort.

Still red, with white sleeves and shorts, the collar has changed; it now has a darker trim.

Perhaps the real intrigue is the inclusion of Alexis, Ozil and Giroud, with all three linked with moves away.

Giroud is wanted by West Ham, while a clutch of elite European clubs are reportedly chasing Alexis, and Ozil’s future remains uncertain.

Petr Cech – modelling next season’s blue goalkeeper kit – and Per Mertesacker are also in the launch, along with a number of fans and, of course, the FA Cup trophy.
