According to BILD, Hertha Berlin have given Dutch talent Omar Rekik permission to depart the club with a move to Arsenal set to be completed.

The brother of Sevilla defender Karim Rekik was set to join Arsenal on the final day of the last transfer window but a deal could not be done on time.

The 19-year-old has now been given permission by Hertha Berlin to head for a medical elsewhere. According to BILD, Arsenal is the obvious destination with Hertha Berlin wanting just €600,000 to part with the young talent.

Rekik has been on the bench for Hertha Berlin’s first-team but has not yet made his debut. He will join the Arsenal U23 side but have opportunities with the first team.
