Arsenal manager could be ready to hand teenage sensation Charlie Patino his senior debut against AFC Wimbledon in the Carabao Cup next week. The 17-year-old is reportedly making waves in first-team training and could make his inaugural appearance soon.
Adidas and Arsenal have launched their official 2021/22 home jersey, inspired by the club’s mantra of ‘Arsenal for everyone’.
According to football.london’s Chris Wheatley, Arteta is considering handing Patino his Arsenal debut in the upcoming Carabao Cup third-round clash.
Wheatley expects Patino to start on the bench when the League One outfit visit the Emirates Stadium next week.
The midfielder has been impressing Arsenal’s first-team players in training, with Ben White and Alexandre Lacazette said to be constantly handing him advice.
Patino has been the subject of excitement at the Gunners for years, stretching back to 2015 since he arrived from Luton Town.
