Omar Rekik is close to joining Arsenal in January as reports claim the Gunners have agreed to snap up the youngster from Hertha Berlin.

The north London club have been strongly linked with the 18-year-old before the end of the summer transfer window.

But a deal for the centre-back could not be struck on deadline day as the Tunisian star remains with the German club.

According to Football London, all is now set for Arsenal to land their man and it is understood that part of the opportunity for him is to regularly train with the first team.

Reports also stated that Rekik will be loaned out to another Bundesliga club to develop his game and have valuable experience.

Though the Tunisian is yet to experience first-team football with Hertha, he has featured on the bench three times without making a substitute appearance.

The left-sided defender is expected to become Mikel Arteta's seventh signing in the 12 months and Rekik will be drafted into their U23 side coached by Per Mertesacker.

The Gabonese team had defeated their opponents by 2-0 a few days earlier with Aubameyang among the scorers.
