Arsenal transfer news is up to date; the new captain has been named, Aubameyang has been stripped of his captaincy, and Smith Rowe's injury has been updated.

PIERRE-EMERICK AUBAMEYANG is no longer captain of Arsenal, and his future at the club is on a knife's edge.

The captain was dropped for a disciplinary breach and did not play in the 3-0 win over Southampton.

"Following his most recent disciplinary breach last week, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will no longer be our club captain, and will not be considered for selection for Wednesday's match against West Ham United," Arsenal said in a statement.

All of our players, especially our captain, are expected to follow the rules and standards that we have all established and agreed upon.

We've also got the latest on Raheem Sterling and Nicholas Pepe from the Emirates.

Manchester United are a late entrant in the race to sign Chelsea's Antonio Rudiger.

That is, if German reports are to be believed.

The Blues defender's contract expires next summer, and he has yet to sign a new deal.

According to reports, the 28-year-old is considering a move to Real Madrid after 'positive talks' with the LaLiga giants.

Man United, according to German broadcaster Sky Sport, is set to make a move for the Champions League winner.

Chelsea are said to have offered Rudiger a new contract worth around £140,000 per week in order to keep him at Stamford Bridge.

That appears to have gone unnoticed in the player's camp, with Real confident in their ability to land their man.

Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain are also rumored to be interested, but the Germany international believes his next destination will be Spain.

Alexandre Lacazette, according to Kevin Campbell, is on his way out of Arsenal.

Lacazette's contract at The Emirates expires at the end of the season, and there is no indication that a new deal will be reached.

"Lacazette is not staying, that's for sure," former Gooner Campbell stated on Highbury Squad.

Mikel Arteta could look to bring in a striker soon, with Dusan Vlahovic being linked. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's future in North London is also in doubt.

Ian Wright had a hilarious retort to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang losing his captaincy at Arsenal.

After his 'latest disciplinary breach' last week, the 32-year-old was fired from his position.

Wright, who was overjoyed when Aubameyang agreed to a new contract in 2020, had the perfect response when Arsenal announced that the captaincy would be handed over.

The 58-year-old Gunners legend shared a meme of himself earlier this season, looking downcast.

Aaron Ramsdale, an Arsenal newcomer, is the ideal candidate to succeed Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as club captain.

Darren Bent, an Arsenal fan and former Tottenham striker, believes the former Sheffield United goalkeeper is the best option to replace Aubameyang after Mikel Arteta stripped him of the armband.

"I'd probably say Ramdale," Bent said when asked who he would choose to replace Aubameyang as Arsenal captain.

"If Tierney can guarantee that he'll play every week, then yes, but other than him, it's got to be Ramsdale because he's the only player who'll play every week."
