Barcelona Considering Surprise Move For Arsenal Youngster - Reports

According to Calcio Mercato, as reported by HITC, Barcelona are interested in signing Arsenal youngster Charlie Patino.

Patino is currently on loan at Blackpool and has made 16 appearances for the club, scoring twice and assisting two more.

Xavi Hernandez's side have long been interested in the player. Patino has made two senior appearances for Arsenal in his career, scoring once against Sunderland in the EFL Cup last year.

Mikel Arteta is building a young squad at the Emirates and given Patino's potential, he might want to fend off Barcelona's interest.

The Catalan club have a young core in their midfield with Pedri and Gavi. However, Sergio Busquets is expected to leave at the end of the season as his contract is set to expire.

Frank Kessie's future also looks uncertain despite the player joining only in the summer. Hence, adding Patino is something that the Blaugrana might want to pursue.
