Arsenal to hand Wilshere club captaincy

Arsenal are ready to name Jack Wilshere club captain.

The People says Thomas Vermaelen's role as skipper is set to come under scrutiny as part of an internal review at the end of this term.

There is a feeling Vermaelen's form has been affected by wearing the armband - and sources say Arsene Wenger is ready to let Wilshere step up.

The 21-year-old signed a five-year deal in December as part of the club's strategy to build the future around their England international.
