boss Mikel Arteta believes

Martin Odegaard

has the potential to become Arsenal captain.

Odegaard left Real Madrid for Arsenal in the summer transfer window and has performed well for the team so far.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

used to wear the captain's armband, but after disciplinary problems, he was stripped of his armband and dropped from the squad, eventually joining Barcelona in the winter transfer window. Arteta has not yet chosen a new captain for his team, but considers 23-year-old Odegaard a good choice.

Arteta said:

"He certainly has all the qualities to do that, absolutely. Talking to his national team coach and how highly they speak of him.

"He walks through the corridor and everybody loves him. He is such a nice, humble guy and he leads with the way he is. It is very natural for him and that will come.

"Martin was really happy to join us because he had a really good time, he felt valued, he enjoyed what we are doing. He got a really good connection with the players and the supporters.

"He wanted to be part of the project. Since then, he is getting better and better, and I am not surprised. The way he lives his profession, the way he likes to play football and everything he does is to become better."
