The Gunners reportedly are pleased with the youngster’s progress with the Championship side. Romano also adds that Patino’s future with Arsenal will be decided in the second half of the season.
How Does This Transfer Link Help Arsenal?
It is no secret that Mikel Arteta’s side are big admirers of Dusan Vlahovic. The English club wanted to sign the £60 million rated Serbian from Fiorentina in the winter of 2022 when he was one of the league’s premier strikers. However, the player and his agent reportedly chose to sign with I Bianconeri instead, upsetting fans of the North London club.
However, the 23-year-old’s stint with Juventus has been less than impressive. He has struggled to find the form he enjoyed with his previous club and injuries have not helped his career either.

Arsenal have recently been linked with several strikers including Ivan Toney and Victor Osimhen. Vlahovic has also been of interest to the London outfit. Romano, however, insists that the situation remains quiet and that “a very important proposal” would have to arrive for the Italians to part ways with their star striker.
Fans of the Gunners would be hoping that their club could strike a deal for the Serbian involving Charlie Patino and aid them in their quest to win a first league title in 20 years.
