Chelsea Launch New Nike Kit  (Sky Sports)

New Nike KitPremier League champions Chelsea have launched their new Nike kit for the 2017/18 season.

Antonio Conte's side will wear Nike strips for the first time in their history as they look to defend their Premier League title and challenge in the Champions League.

The blue home shirt is a minimalistic design that, according to Nike, is "rooted deeply in the club's heritage", with a shirt from the early 1970s used to match the desired shade of blue.

The shirt is partnered with blue shorts and white socks.

The away strip, meanwhile, is white with a silver hue that Nike say "reflects the club's ever-growing collection of silverware".

Antonio Rudiger could be the newest player to wear the kit as he looks set to sign from Roma.

Sky in Italy understand Chelsea have agreed a £33.4m deal with Roma to sign the 24-year-old and he will undergo a medical on Monday and finalise personal terms on a five-year contract.
