As some of the best clubs in Europe begin to sniff out your signature, on Thursday you will get a glimpse of Mikel Arteta’s plans for Arsenal’s talented Charlie Patino.
Who is Patiño?
The 17-year-old Patiño is making his way through the lower ranks of Arsenal in the Premier League.
The star is a midfielder by profession, with a wide range of outstanding technical attributes.
After starting to attract attention with the Gunners Under-18s last season, Patiño, despite his tender years, was subsequently called up to be part of the club’s Under-23s, in Premier League 2.
And the months since then have only seen the English go from strength to strength, amid suggestions that Patiño is not just one of, but THE most promising talent currently plying his trade in the red half of North London.
This is certainly an opinion shared by the man who proved to be the decisive voice in luring the teenager to the capital early in his fledgling career, with Gunners scout Brian Stapleton who recently provided insight into Patiño’s talents:
“Of all the years I’ve been exploring, he’s the best boy I’ve ever seen.”
‘I got a tip about Charlie from a guy, so I went there and couldn’t believe what I was seeing. I was 11 years old and I think I was playing in the U-13, and I was like ‘wow’.
His first touch was incredible, his vision, his awareness of space. He was way above his years, he was on another planet to anyone else in the field. ‘
I made a phone call to my department head at Arsenal at the time, Sean O’Connor. He asked me what I thought and I said: ‘well, I’m not going back. I don’t need to see more, you have to sign this guy right away. ‘

The outfit in question? Barcelona.
According to a report by Mirror, La Liga heavyweights are not only fans of the midfielder’s profile, but Patiño himself would probably be interested in a change to Camp Nou, due to his
Mikel Arteta, however, seems determined to make sure another of the emerging talents that have emerged in the English capital doesn’t go anywhere anytime soon.
Between suggestions that Patiño, next month, will be offered a new contract in the Emirates when he turns 18, the Gunners boss is ready to throw the youngster into the deep end.
Patiño is expected to be named to the team that hosts AFC Wimbledon in North London next week for a League Cup third-round clash, and it seems likely that he will debut from the bench, amid demonstrations every more impressive in the first team training sessions.
