Charlie Patino is one of Arsenal’s most promising graduates right now. Last season, he was a member of a few Arsenal first-team squads.
Arsenal hoped that a loan move would provide him with the necessary game time to break into the first team proper. However, things are not going as smoothly as planned.

After rolling his ankle in the crucial 1-0 win over QPR, the 18-year-old didn’t make it to the second half, and the swelling prevented him from returning after the break.
Coach for Blackpool Michael Appleton, told LancsLive:
Charlie (Patino), his ankle is quite swollen. The injury to Charlie was a big blow because he was having a big influence on the game, he was playing his part. It’s not great, if I’m being honest.
It was quite badly swollen at half-time, so it’s obviously something where we’ve got to control the swelling, get the swelling down. Once we’re in a position where the swelling is under control, then he can go and get it scanned.
