Tension exists between Arsenal's board and club chief Vinai Venkatesham.
The north London giants always insisted they merely signed up to the ESL to avoid being left behind, issuing an apology when their plans were ultimately called off.
The Daily Mail says Venkatesham has suggested he was left in the dark over the club's Super League plans.
Arsenal, however, disagree.
They instead say he was merely pointing out the club weren't 'the drivers or authors of the botched scheme', hinting Venkatesham is trying to absolve himself of blame.
Arsenal and other top six clubs were recently punished for their actions, given a £20million fine to pay between them.
