ARSENAL star Kieran Tierney has revealed he would love to the captain the club in the future.
And the 24-year-old has declared that should he get the armband, he would follow in the mould of ex-Celtic team-mate Scott Brown.
Since joining the Gunners from the Hoops in 2019, the left-back has become an integral part of the squad.
This has been underlined by the North London outfit tying the Scotland international down to a bumper long-term contract in the summer worth £110,000-a-week.
Undoubtedly one of the leaders in the Arsenal dressing room, Tierney is a leading candidate to replace Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as skipper.
The Gabonese striker has two years left to run on his deal at the Emirates, but with the club said to be eyeing up a move to sign Dominic Calvert-Lewin, he could be sold next summer.
And in an interview with Sky Sports, Tierney was asked about the possibility of becoming the next Arsenal captain.
To which he said: "I feel as if I’ve learned off some great leaders.

"I always go back to Scott Brown, I think he’s the perfect example of a leader.
"He was born to be a leader, what he’s done in his career and how he carried the team for years and years, I learned off him.
"I came here and there are leaders here that I’m learning off as well and at Scotland as well.
"I’ve been lucky enough to captain Celtic and Scotland at a young age, it’s something that, of course, would be an honour to captain your national team or the club you’re playing for.
"I just need to concentrate on giving 100 per cent. You can still be a leader without the armband."
Meanwhile, Jack Wilshere has revealed that Tierney is the fastest player in the Arsenal squad – ahead of forward Aubameyang.
