Latest rumours on Liverpool’s first Nike home kit

More details have surfaced about Liverpool's first kit with new Nike suppliers, with the possible inspiration taken from a shirt from the 1990s.

The Reds are in their latest campaign in the New Balance T-shirts, with Nike agreeing to a profitable deal to start delivering kits from the 2020/21 season.

The models are already agreed between the two parties, the goods being sold in over 6,000 "doors" around the world, providing the club with a considerable boost on the initial payment of 30 million pounds a year from the new partner.

Indeed, the deal could win Liverpool a 100 million pound project every season, which would be close to Real Madrid's 110 million pound record with Adidas.

Liverpool should start next term as Premier League champions and, according to trusted Footy Headlines, will do so by wearing a deep red similar to Portugal's home shirt for the 2018 World Cup.

Moreover, they "confirm" that this will be complemented by white and tea, which explains will present "on the collar and cuffs".

Footy captions provided an example of a color scheme on their Instagram, showing what white-and-teal cufflinks might look like alongside traditional red:

This might be inspired by the Liverpool shirt he wore in 1993/94 and 1994/95, which saw white details over the Adidas shirt and a green band / hem at the collars and cuffs.

Roy Evans took over from Graeme Souness midway through the 1993/94 campaign, and the Reds won the League Cup wearing the T-shirt in 1995, defeating Bolton 2-1 at Wembley.

They also wore it for a pre-season clash with Iwisa Kaizer of Johannesburg in 1994, before John Barnes led the team in a meeting with Nelson Mandela.

It is safe to say that Nike will produce a decidedly more "modern" design, with Footy Headlines speculating that it may be similar to the Barcelona and Tottenham shirts recently dropped for next season, with a V-overlay collar.

Of course, this is just speculation, Liverpool and Nike are unable to reveal their new-look kits until the deal with New Balance ends on June 1st.

Earlier information suggested that the remote kit would be "hyper turqoise", which may be similar to the 1992/93 shirt, while the third kit would be "dark gray, most likely with a subtle pattern. black and pink red lace. logos."

Footy also claimed that Liverpool could announce a fourth kit for 2020/21, which would be white, with black accents and the same "red rose" for the logos.
