Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta admits Alexandre Lacazette is the next in line for the captaincy at the club.

The Gunners have stripped Gabon striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang of the captaincy due to a disciplinary matter.

Asked about Lacazette as a leader, Arteta said: “It’s in his nature. He’s not a selfish player. He’s a player that’s happy when they make the team better.”
