Laurent Koscielny is in a row with Arsenal after failing to link up with the rest of the squad for their pre-season tour to the US as Unai Emery discusses' possible replacements for him in the captain's role.

Arsenal played their second pre-season game as they beat Bayern Munich 2-1 thanks to a last-gasp winner from Eddie Nketiah. Bordeaux and Stade Rennes are keen on signing Koscielny but have not made a bid for him in the current transfer window.

Emery revealed the possible candidates for Koscielny's replacements, "We spoke a little about that. Last year we had Laurent, Petr Cech and Aaron Ramsey. At the moment Koscielny has a contract with us but we'll speak with the club and him about if he'll continue or not.

"We have players with the capacity, one is Granit, he was a captain in the dressing room. We have others like Mesut, Nacho. There are other players who can take this position also. I want between three and five captains in the team."
