Arsenal news: Granit Xhaka set to be named Gunners captain following Laurent Koscielny’s pre-season snub

Koscielny was set to continue as captain for the 2019/20 campaign before he refused to travel to the Gunners’ tour of the United States.

Emery is now on the hunt for Koscielny’s successor but with senior players Aaron Ramsey and Petr Cech both leaving the Emirates this summer, the Spaniard has found himself short of options for the role.

Switzerland international Xhaka, 26, is an obvious contender as he is a key member of the starting line-up and has suitable leadership qualities for the role.

But Emery has also stated that Mesut Ozil could be considered, despite the pair reportedly falling out last season and the Spaniard believed to be keen to offload him this summer in an effort to reduce the wage bill at the club.
