Dani Ceballos calls reports of training ground fight with David Luiz '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.

Arteta would not reveal if Willian would be in the squad for Sunday's Premier League trip to Leeds - but he did stress that there were other factors to be considered.

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.

Rogic managed to play just 22 times across all competitions last season as a knee injury limited his availability under Neil Lennon.

However, the United Arab Emirates is not on the UK's quarantine list and the 32-year-old Brazilian has been able to return to training this week.

Speaking on the development during his pre-match press conference on Friday, Arteta told Arsenal's official website: "We [Willian and I] had a conversation, and I explained what I expected". "They have players of hierarchy in all of their lines".

"Whether they are right or wrong, it's a thing that we have to discuss".

The extra headaches will not have been welcomed by Arteta, with both Mohamed Elneny and Sead Kolasinac testing positive for Covid-19 during a hectic global break.
