The player is in his late 20s and is currently in custody being quizzed over an alleged attack which is said to have taken place last month.
The club has been contacted by Telegraph Sport and is aware the player is being questioned, but it declined to comment.
On 4 July, an allegation of rape of a woman in her 20s was reported to police," the Met Police said in a statement. "It was reported the alleged rape happened in June 2022."
Police said the man was arrested "at an address in Barnet on suspicion of rape and taken into custody where he remains".
The player is internationally renowned and it is unclear whether he will now play in his club's pre-season fixture schedule. The Premier League season begins on August 5 and the player is also due to play at the World Cup in Qatar this November
Crazy how many players are doing this shit recently, any guesses as to who it could be? Late 20s and internationally renowned, also set to play in the World Cup, apparently he was arrested in North London, so maybe Arsenal or Tottenham?
Well I hope it's not another black player again
