Omar Rekik seem to be an outstanding Defender but one cannot easily forget how a defensive mastermind like Willian Saliba was treated in his time with Arsenal.
The player joined the club from Bundesliga side Hertha Berlin for a €600k fee and he has had his medical completed as he joined Arsenal. The player seems solid as you can. See from the Highlight below 👇
Although the player was assured of playing time but the reality is would he be given playing time with the first team squad given the team already have loads of options in center defense as Pablo Mari is on the form of his life same as Gabriel and Rob holding also David Luiz is an option and also not forgetting Mustafi and sokratis who are also options.
One would think the reason behind this transfer given that Willam Saliba seems surplus to requirement to the club why then should they go for another Defender.
Mikel Arteta seems like he is in support of the player and has welcomed the player wholeheartedly to his squad it is Reported the player even trained with the under-23 side today.
When Rekik was asked how he felt about joining a team as Arsenal he said:
Omar Rekik on what fans can expect from him:
"I’m a winner. I always want to win, and that’s with everything. I’m a central defender and I like to play with the ball, I like to play out from the back, and I think this is also the structure of the club. It fits perfectly." pic.twitter.com/QzDpEtlOvR
