Who Will Be The Next Arsenal Captain?

Cech and Koscielny
Arsenal will have to appoint a new club captain following Mikel Arteta’s departure at the end of the season.

The Spaniard bid farewell to the Gunners after five years of services to pursue his coaching career and has left Arsene Wenger pondering who should be given the captain’s armband for next season.

In the absence of Arteta for the majority of last season, Wenger opted to give captain duties to Per Mertesacker.

And although the German centre-back is the obvious choice to take over from Arteta as skipper next season, mainly because he was the stand-in one, there is another candidate up for the job.

According to France Football, as reported by Metro, it is believed Laurent Koscielny has now become a frontrunner for the armband after being with the club for six years now.
Koscielny is one of the longest-tenured Arsenal players on the roster, having made over 240 appearances for Arsenal since joining from Lorient in 2010.

There had been rumours that goalkeeper Petr Cech would be given the captain’s armband after the strong leadership he displayed in his first season with the club. Vice-captain Per Mertesacker was also in the running.

Koscielny would be the fourth French player to serve as Arsenal Day-One captain since countryman Arsene Wenger took over the team in 1996. Club legends Patrick Vieira, Thierry Henry and William Gallas were the other three.
