One of the standout prospects in the entire academy, Patino made two appearances for the first-team last season, memorably scoring on his debut against Sunderland in the Carabao Cup. He also featured against Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup. 

Patino also continued to feature prominently for the U23s and was named on the bench in the Premier League.

Possessing a superb passing range and impressive technical ability, he has also got stronger physically recently. 

A player with an excellent mentality, Patino joined Arsenal from Luton Town’s academy when he was 11 years old.

This season Patino will hope for further involvement in senior football of some description.
