Arsenal has been hit by another captain crisis as Pierre Emerick Aubameyang has been stripped of the captaincy. Mikel Arteta described the decision as being based on several ‘disciplinary breaches’ by the Gabon Striker. Arsenal football club released a statement where they confirmed that he will not be in the squad to face West Ham. This begs the question of who will be the next captain of Arsenal as we look at four players to replace Aubameyang as the new captain of Arsenal :
#4 Gabriel Magalhães
Gabriel Magalhães is my captain btw. What a colossal player.

Arsenal’s solid centre back can be an amazing option for the club to be the next captain. The Brazilian has been in terrific form this season and is slowly becoming a fan favourite. Gabriel is only 23 years of age and could cement the captaincy for a long time. Gabriel is also regular in the lineup which makes him one of the ideal options for Mikel Arteta to consider.
#3 Aaron Ramsdale

‘If Tierney could guarantee that he’s going to play every single week, then yeah, but other than him it’s got to be Ramsdale as he’s the only player who’s going to play every single week.’ pic.twitter.com/c3qR5B0A5h

Ramsdale has become a fan favourite right from his first game at Arsenal. It has also been a while since Arsenal have had an English captain, although Rob Holding, Jack Wilshere & Theo Walcott have taken up the role temporarily. Tony Adams was arguably Arsenal’s greatest captain as an England international. He also possesses great leadership qualities as seen in the recent games.
#2 Kieran Tierney

Scottish International Kieran Tierney comes off as a proper captain material for Mikel Arteta to consider. If you have to pick a captain they have to be a big part of the future. Kieran Tierney makes the perfect candidate to be the captain of The North London club. If Kieran Tierney could be fit for a long period he will be Mikel’s ideal candidate.
#1 Martin Odegaard
