North London giants Arsenal are reportedly about to further invest in the defensive area with Rekik.
According to English papers, the 18-year-old central defender is in London to sign for Arsenal, but is due to go out on loan.
“Arsenal are set to complete the signing of Hertha Berlin defender Omar Rekik after he touched down in London on Thursday, according to the Mirror,” Goal reported.
“The Gunners had a bid accepted late in the summer but were unable to formalise the move before the window closed.
“Rekik isn't expected to play for Arsenal straight away and could be sent straight out on loan,” concluded the report.
Mikel Arteta’s team is now focused on a Premier League trip to the dangerous Everton this weekend.
