Arsenal could be on the hunt for a new captain after Laurent Koscielny refused to travel with the Gunners on their pre-season tour of the United States.

The current Gunners skipper looks set to leave after refusing to travel on the pre-season tour, but who would take on his role at the Emirates?



“Laurent Koscielny has refused to travel to the US for our pre-season tour,” a short statement on the club’s official website read.



“We are very disappointed by Laurent’s actions, which are against our clear instructions.

The main problem with naming Xhaka as captain is that he’s someone who could find himself replaced next summer as the club continue to rebuild.

Branded ‘independent and driven’ the 24-year-old has still got his best years ahead of him and could ply them at the Emirates as captain.

The German shot-stopper is a superb diplomat and won the adoration of Arsenal fans last summer with his comments upon joining the club.
