Arsenal are reportedly looking to include a buy-back clause in the deal that will see Charlie Patino leave.
The 19-year-old Academy product is set to leave the Gunners on a permanent deal this summer.
Patino, who has spent this season on loan at Blackpool, is looking to move away from Arsenal in search of first-team minutes.
However, Mikel Arteta’s side seem eager to hold on to the chance of bringing him back at some point in the future.
Fabrizio Romano Reports indicate that Gunners will attempt to insert a buyback clause into his sale this summer.
They want to retain some form of control over the midfielder despite his departure, with a future return on the cards.
Patino has only made two appearances for Arsenal, both of which came last season in the FA Cup and League Cup.
During his time at Blackpool this season, he scored three goals and provided four assists in 37 appearances.
