The Sun newspaper published footage of a number of players, including Mesut Ozil, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette, appearing to inhale the substance also known as laughing gas. Henrikh Mkhitaryan is also seen in the video, though the Armenian wasn't seen with a balloon.

While it is not illegal to possess the drug, it is illegal to give away or sell.

An Arsenal spokesperson told the BBC players would be "spoken to and reminded of their responsibilities".

The Sun quoted a source as saying that the players had been "off their heads on the gas" and that Ozil, 30, a World Cup victor with Germany in 2014, had "looked out of it at one point".

Other well-known Premier League players have previously caused outrage after being filmed apparently inhaling the gas, including England internationals Kyle Walker and Raheem Sterling.

According to the Daily Mirror, a bunch of Arsenal players were enjoying themselves at Tape nightclub in London before the season started when they were caught up in a scandal.

Arsenal endured a challenging start to the season, and manager Unai Emery found himself under a huge amount of pressure.
