Arsenal youngster Omar Rekik has been called up to represent Tunisia at the upcoming African Cup of Nations, played from January 9th to February 6th. His country will start its involvement in the tournament in Cameroon on January 12th against Mali in Group F, and continue with a clash against Mauritania on the 16th, before closing the group stage against Gambia four days later.

Arteta on Ozil future and Omar Rekik 0

Speaking to the press ahead of Arsenal’s FA Cup clash with Newcastle United on Saturday, manager Mikel Arteta was asked about the situation and the ongoing rumours about Mesut Ozil potentially leaving the club this month, as well as the progress when it comes to signing Omar Rekik from Hertha Berlin.

However, there appears to be a reasonable possibility that he could leave the Emirates this month already, given that he’s practically certain to stay frozen out of the squad for the rest of his contract if he stays. Reports of interest from the likes of DC United and Fenerbahce have been doing the rounds in the last few days.
