EPL: Five players listed to replace Aubameyang as Arsenal captain

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will lose the captaincy at Arsenal to either Ben White, Gabriel, Aaron Ramsdale, Alexandre Lacazette, or Granit Xhaka.

The Cabonese’s position as the club’s captain is under threat after he was dropped against Southampton over a disciplinary breach.

The Gunners’ manager had to drop the Gabon international from the matchday squad due to a disciplinary breach.

Aubameyang’s actions in recent weeks have been heavily criticized with several calls for him to be stripped off the armband.

Although Arteta has yet to decide if he will remain captain or not, The Mirror listed five realistic candidates to replace Aubameyang.

And they are Ben White, who only joined the club in the summer but is highly rated at the Emirates having been signed for a mouthwatering £50 million.

Brazil international Gabriel is another player being tipped for the captaincy and others are: Goalkeeper, Aaron Ramsdale; striker Alexandre Lacazette and midfielder, Granit Xhaka.
