Second Arsenal insider claims wonderkid set for first senior call-up

Chris Wheatley has claimed that wonderkid Charlie Patino is set for a call-up to Arsenal’s senior squad for the upcoming EFL Cup clash with Wimbledon.

The Gunners will play host to the Dons at the Emirates next Wednesday in the third round of the League Cup, and this will be a rare occasion when our manager can look to give minutes to some of his less experienced stars, and young Patino could well be at the head of the queue of those deserving of a call-up.

The 17 year-old has been thoroughly impressing behind the scenes in north London, with the senior players claimed to have been in awe of his talents when playing alongside the midfielder during our friendly win over Brentford during the international break, and he now looks set to get a taste of first-team football next week.

“Charlie Patino likely to be named in upcoming Carabao Cup game against Wimbledon,” Chris Wheatley told his YouTube followers.

“We probably expect him to be on the bench this game. I’ve been told he’s really impressing the Arsenal players in the first team.”

Charles Watts also claimed that Patino could be in line for his debut against Wimbledon this week to back up the claims of Chris Wheatley.

Could Patino earn his way into the first-team squad during the campaign?

  1. You never truly find out, UNLESS and UNTIL you give a promising player a real chance in the first team.

    I expect him to play some part this season and quite possibly to appear in a Prenm gameor more, though perhaps later rather than earlier in this season.

    Great players to be are almost invariable showing their special talent to insiders in the club by age 17, or even younger. JUST FOR ADDED PERSPECTIVE!!
