Dizzy Clicking sound from motor while running idle Astra 2009

Hi everybody!
I'm looking to buy a 2009 Astra XE for 3000$ with 104 000km. The only thing keeping me from buying it is a noisy clicking sound coming from the motor while running idle. Here's a video of the noise: "" (remove the comas before copying the link)
I was wondering if any of you had an idea what that noise was? I heard Astras had a lot of problems with camshaft related things and since I'm not a pro, i'm reluctant to buy the car without knowing if it's a serious problem. Any ideas?
