Arsenal are said to be extremely happy with midfielder, Charlie Patino who is currently enjoying a successful loan spell with Swansea City in the Championship this season.

The 20-year-old midfielder almost left Arsenal permanently in the summer, as reported by David Ornstein. The Gunners had initially planned to sell Patino, before Mikel Arteta convinced the midfielder to go out on loan for one more season.

Charlie Patino headed to the Liberty Stadium to prove to the people at Arsenal that he is good enough to make it at the North London club and from his performances so far this season, he’s certainly taken his chance.

The Arsenal loanee has featured 20 times for Swansea City in the Championship this season, scoring three goals and recording four assists. He’s been one of the best players in the team, which says a lot about how good the 20-year-old has been in the Championship so far in 2023/24.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Arsenal are indeed very happy with how Patino is getting on over in Wales: “Charlie Patino, the Arsenal youngster out on loan at Swansea City, has also been linked as a target for Juventus, but again I’m not aware of anything between Juve and Patino at the moment. Decisions will be made in the second half of 2024, not now.

“From Arsenal’s perspective, they are happy with Patino’s progress this season and the agreement with Swansea was probably a smart decision by the club when they had to resolve his future back in the summer.”

There’s no doubt Arsenal have a midfield space available for Charlie Patino when he returns from his loan spell next season. Kai Havertz is currently operating in the LCM role, however it’s not seen as the long-term plan. If Patino can keep performing the way he is, then Mikel Arteta could give him a shot in the first-team in 2025.
