Chermiti: New challenge for striker
Tunisia international striker Mohamed Amine Chermiti looks set to join Bundesliga outfit Hertha Berlin.
Chermiti's club Etoile Sportive du Sahel Sousse want him to play in the Tunisian Cup semi-final on 28th June, while Hertha insist he is required to arrive in the German capital for pre-season training on 26th June.
"We have reached an agreement, both the clubs and the player. Now it's just a question of when Chermiti will start his new job in Berlin," the 20-year-old's agent told Berliner Zeitung.
Chermiti, who has been offered a four-year deal at the Olympiastadion, will reportedly cost Hertha around €2 million.
