On deadline day last October, Arsenal were strongly linked with a move for young defender Omar Rekik.
The then 18 year old was expected to join from Hertha Berlin, but in the end the deal didn’t completed in time.
However, Rekik now looks to have been fully brought on board, with Jeorge Bird reporting he is already training with the U23s.
Speaking about the signing, Mikel Arteta said, “We will announce it when we possibly can, he is a young talent that we have been following for a while that has a really bright future, but we will give more details when we can.”
Asked when exactly it might be, he continued, “I don’t know! Very soon.”
Arsenal are believed to have paid around £1m for the 19 year old who was born in the Netherlands and who has represented them at youth level, but whose international future lies with Tunisia.
He’s a right footed centre-half, and as Arteta said, the deal is expected go through shortly.
