DONE DEAL? Arsenal pushing through signing of Hertha Berlin defender Omar Rekik

Arsenal are pushing through with a deal for Hertha Berlin defender Omar Rekik.

Rekik is set to become the club's sixth acquisition of the 2020-21 season.

The north Londoners have reached an agreement for the centre-back to join them in January.

The Tunisia international was supposed to join the Gunners on transfer deadline day but saw his move to the Emirates collapse at the eleventh hour.

Rekik's transfer to Arsenal, however, is set to go through in January - although he may not necessarily go straight into the Premier League big boys' Under-23s squad, says Football.london.

Arsenal could loan Rekik back to Hertha in order to further facilitate his development.

A decision on the matter, however, is said to have not been made yet.
