In a statement released by the club earlier this week, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was relieved of his duties as Arsenal captain by Mikel Arteta. After carrying the Gunners for three seasons, the Gabon international seemed to run out of steam for this campaign.

This can also indicate a falling out with the Spaniard, as the African striker does not enjoy the best of relations with the ex-Arsenal and Everton midfielder. So, who can the new captain of Arsenal? And what odds can we get on it? Alley Sport helps you find out.

The Gunners have sacked Aubameyang as their captain in a 58-word statement after the player breached multiple disciplinary rules at the club. The statement by the club read:

“Following his latest disciplinary breach last week, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will no longer be our club captain, and will not be considered for selection for Wednesday’s match against West Ham United.”

“We expect all our players, particularly our captain, to work to the rules and standards we have all set and agreed. We are fully focused on tomorrow’s match.”

Arsenal are yet to appoint a new captain at the club and it may be apparent in their next game against West Ham United in the London derby. It could well be their vice captain and who is Arsenal new captain.

Arsenal’s vice captain, currently, seems to be Alexandre Lacazette. The Frenchman donned the armband in their win against Southampton, a game that the former Saint-Etienne forward missed due to breaching disciplinary rules.

As for the odds, bookmakers place the France international at 6/4 to replace Aubameyang and give the same odds to Granit Xhaka. We do not advise you to place your money on the Swiss midfielder because he has already been stripped of the honour.

Scottish left-back Kieran Tierney is next on the list at 4/1 followed by goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale at 8/1. It would be wise to make the goalkeeper captain as it is important for the man with the armband to command his team properly, something with Ramsdale can do well being the last man in the team’s formation, with the whole squad in front of him.
