Arsenal confident signing Hertha Berlin defender Omar Rekik this week

Arsenal are confident announcing the signing of Hertha Berlin defender Omar Rekik this week.

Arsenal are set to confirm the £900,000 signing of Rekik this week.

The 19-year-old will be the first signing of the January transfer window for Gunners boss Mikel Arteta.

Rekik is a centre back but is not expected to be part of Arteta's first-team plans straight away, due to their surplus in this position currently.

And Football.london says Arsenal are keen to loan their impending signing back to Hertha to aid his development but as of yet not decision has been made.
