Arsenal midfielder Charlie Patino got himself two assists as his Blackpool team thrashed Queens Park Rangers 6-1 on Tuesday night.
The 19-year-old has impressed whilst out on loan with the Tangerines this season and plenty of supporters on Twitter would like to see him back playing for the Gunners next campaign:
The future is so bright ❤️

He needs a season of watching Xhaka & Fabio Vieira and how they play the LCM role in this Arteta team, make no doubts about it he is the future of that position, it’s just whether he’s willing to wait for his chance to shine

He should improve. If he is that good, Arsenal will be eager to bring him back.

Next season we are playing champions league, the league, FA, and all other cups. They shouldn’t let Patino and Bolagun go.

PL loan next szn🤞🏻then back to replace Xhaka as backup LCM in 2024. Would still buy a new starting LCM this summer.

Patino has had a decent spell with Blackpool, although it must be said that he had spent three matches as an unused substitute before returning to the starting eleven against QPR earlier this week.
The teenager’s stats are not particularly impressive, with his two assists on Tuesday adding to the five other goal contributions he has made in 29 appearances.
Based on those figures, Patino may well be set for another loan spell away from the Emirates. After gaining experience in the Championship, the next logical step would be another Premier League team so we shall see whether any clubs make a move for him this summer.
