Arsenal to talk to players seen apparently inhaling nitrous oxide

Arsenal players celebrate a goal during their Uefa Europa League Group E match against Vorskla FC at the Olympiyski Stadium in Kiev

Footage of Arsenal players inhaling nitrous oxide, more commonly known as "balloons" or "happy crack", emerged last night.

The video, obtained by The Sun shows the players in a London club days before the start of the season appearing to use nitrous oxide, and while the gas is freely available it is illegal to sell for recreational purposes.

According to the newspaper, the group of Gunners players - which also contained Alexandre Lacazette, 27, midfielder Matteo Guendouzi, 19, and Sead Kolasinac, 25 - were allegedly seen inhaling the drug, with some of them later seen strewn out on sofas.

A number of Gunners stars were in attendance at the "champagne and vodka party" in a VIP area of a West End Nightclub in August prior to the Premier League season getting underway.
