Arsenal's troubled star Wojciech Szczesny has hit the front pages once again after The Sun published a photo allegedly showing the goalkeeper enjoying laughing gas.

The Poland international is facing an uncertain future at the Emirates Stadium after Arsene Wenger chose to sign Chelsea's Petr Cech in a £10m deal.

And he has now given the Arsenal boss further reason to throw him out of north London after being caught sampling 'hippy crack'.

Although only a fuzzy screenshot is offered as evidence, The tabloid newspaper claims that the blurry, human-like figure is Szczesny and the red thing in his mouth is a ballon filled with nitrous oxide.

A witness to the incident said in the same report: “He was surrounded by girls who were all doing it. He got passed a balloon. He inhaled from it and was laughing and enjoying it. As an Arsenal fan, I am very disappointed.”

Wenger's response

Szczesny would have been enjoying a life of luxury at 50,000 feet when this story emerged as he flew out with the Arsenal squad to take part in their pre-season tour of Asia yesterday.

The Arsenal squad were treated to first-class from their sponsors Emirates airlines and an official club photo showed him enjoying himself next to Petr Cech.

Wenger, who obviously agreed to speak to The Telegraph immediately after the flight, said in response to the report that he would first seek the full story from Szczesny before deciding on any punishment.

He said: “I’ve seen the story but I have to find out all of the details, speak to him first and see if it is true and what he has to say."

The best tweets

Arsenal fans have already started to have their say on social media with several already wondering whether this will be the final straw. Szczesny was fined £20,000 after he was caught smoking in the Southampton dressing room after a 2-0 defeat and was also pictured smoking in Poland.
