Arsenal fans are convinced the glory days are returning to the Emirates after Martin Odegaard was confirmed as the new Gunners captain.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was stripped of his captaincy by Mikel Arteta – shortly before the Gabonese international was sold to Barcelona. Alexandre Lacazette took up the mantle to the end of the season, when his contract expired in north London.

One fan tweeted: "Happy with this, I think he’s intelligent, a good communicator, and a good representative of the club."

"Fully back it. All things considered, he’s our best option," a fourth tweeted.
