According to The Telegraph, Liverpool will sign a new kit deal with Nike, replacing their £45million-a-year deal with New Balance.

The Reds are thriving on the pitch under Jurgen Klopp, having won the Champions League in June and now started the Premier League season with six wins in a row.

Now with a real chance to win the Premier League title, Liverpool are in a great place under Klopp – and they're looking to maximise their off-field activities too.

 

It's believed that Liverpool will end their ties with New Balance, with their deal running out next summer, and will switch over to have their kits manufactured by Nike instead.

Liverpool's current deal is worth around £45million-a-year, but they're looking to get a deal worth around £75million-a-year from Nike, still some way short of Barcelona's deal with them.

However, it's claimed that Liverpool want to basically copy Manchester United's 10-year, £75million-a-year deal with Nike, which will give them a major cash windfall.

That extra £30million-a-year will certainly come in handy, and may just give Liverpool a little more power in the transfer market.

The deal should be confirmed soon, which will excite Liverpool fans, whilst New Balance will be losing one of their key representatives due to gripes over distribution and a deal that doesn't increase incrementally.
