But Arteta, whose side travel to face Leeds on Sunday, said there was nothing untoward in the pair having a disagreement.

Arsenal duo David Luiz and Dani Ceballos were reportedly involved in a furious training ground bust-up during the global break which led to the on loan Real Madrid midfielder drawing blood.

Luiz is reported to have struck Ceballos on the nose, drawing blood through a scratch, before the pair were separated by members of the Gunners' coaching staff. Those things get resolved immediately within the team and there is not much to say.

"There is no problem between the two".

Ceballos took to Twitter to label the story as "FAKE".

Earlier this season, Ceballos and another teammate, Eddie Nketiah, were involved in a short and quickly defused altercation during the warm up Arsenal's game against Fulham at Craven Cottage.

Brazil forward Willian's trip to Dubai came to light after a photograph of the 32-year-old appeared on Instagram.

Under coronavirus restrictions in the England, worldwide travel is not permitted apart from for limited purposes such as work or education. "That has been dealt with and explained, and we move on".

"We had a conversation and I explained what I was expecting", added Arteta.

"For every player there are a lot of personal factors at the moment".

The latest revelations will do no favours for Arteta, with Mohamed Elneny and Sead Kolasinac testing positive for COVID-19, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang sleeping on the floor of an airport and Willian breaking government guidelines to visit Dubai despite the national lockdown.
