In January, Arsenal club captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was moved on
Leaving Alexandre Lacazette and then Martin Odegaard with the armband, but who is ready to take the title full time?
The role of Arsenal captain is one that many have taken on and done the job brilliantly
While others have left a lot to be desired. It is often fraught with danger as there has been a rather odd correlation between being the Gunners skipper and having a horror injury run or enduring an unsavory exit from the club.
Thomas Vermaelen, Laurent Koscielny, William Gallas, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, and Robin van Persie are just some of the names who have had the injury and nasty exit curse since taking the armband (Cesc Fabregas is a good shout too).
3 candidates for Arsenal captaincy next season
Aubameyang took the armband for the club but was moved on during the January transfer window last season. That left Lacazette and then Odegaard to wear the armband for the remainder of the season
but who is Mikel Arteta’s choice heading into next season?
I give my three picks for Arsenal captain next year
The Scottish left-back is a bonafide captain in every sense of the word.
Tough, gritty, not afraid to get down and dirty, and perhaps most of all, he possesses all the leadership qualities needed.
His recent injury history is a cause for concern as a captain should be playing week in and week out.
But for Tierney, he would be, for some, a logical choice for Mikel Arteta.
He is rarely beaten, not one to shy away from criticizing his teammates to get the best out of them
However, and is vocal on the pitch. All of which points to a player being captain material.
