Who could replace Granit Xhaxa as Arsenal captain?

Granit Xhaxa

Granit Xhaka's future as Arsenal captain looks in severe doubt after Sunday's 2-2 draw at home to Crystal palace.

The Swiss international was booed off before gesturing towards the fans and then proceeded to storm down the tunnel.

Manager Unai Emery has refused to comment on his captains future and he could well be looking for a new captain in the very near future.

We look at a few contenders the Spaniard might want to look at when selecting his new skipper.

Matteo Guendouzi

He is only 20 but has quickly established himself as a regular starter for the Gunners and is one of the few players standing out for Arsenal this season.

Guendouzi has become a vital part of Arsenal's team, often playing deep in the midfield and breaking up play.

Despite only being 20, he's shown he isn't afraid to get stuck in and get himself about, hence he picked up nine yellow cards in his first Premier League season.

At such a young age, he could be a regular in the Arsenal team for years to come and making him captain could provide some stability to North London outfit.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

A more experienced option would be Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who many would class as the Gunners' best player.

He notched 22 league goals for the Gunners last season and has seven already in the league this season.

He is no doubt one of the first names on Unai Emery's team sheet and he would no doubt be a popular, respected selection amongst his team mates.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Arsenal

Aubameyang is 30 years old but doesn't look like declining anytime soon and hasn't been at Arsenal long.

Giving him the captaincy for a few seasons before passing onto Guendouzi may be a sensible approach.

Bernd Leno

The German has cemented his place as Arsenal's number one goalkeeper and as a result is guaranteed to start most games for the Gunners.

Since being at Arsenal, he has shown he his fairly level headed and has become popular with the fans with his passion on the pitch.

Bernd Leno Arsenal

He is still 27, and as a goalkeeper, still has many years ahead of him.

He has been at the Emirates for a while now and is beginning to become a senior player and can be someone the younger players look up to.
