66. Omar Rekik

Born: December 20th 2001

Position: Centre-back

International: Tunisia senior team

A talented defender, Rekik joined Arsenal from Hertha Berlin in January 2021 but didn’t make his debut for the U23s until the final game of the season against West Ham United because of injury.

Rekik featured for the Tunisia senior side against Mali in June and then made his non-competitive senior debut for Arsenal the following month against Hibernian.

An impressive passer who is aggressive in the challenge, he is expected to mainly feature for the U23s this season but will also hope for some involvement with the first-team and is set to train with the squad regularly.
