Following in the footsteps of Luton Town academy product Jack Wilshere, 11 year old prodigy Charlie Patino has already got a host of London clubs vying for his signature.

According to the Mail, the Luton season ticket holder is currently in the midst of a bidding war between Arsenal, Chelsea and Spurs, who have all made offers for the Hitchin lad.

The asking price is understood to be around the £10,000 mark, which seems a lot for such a young kid with no guarantee that he'll go on to professional glory, but in such a highly competitive game no club wants to miss out on a future talent. Let's just hope he turns out better for Arsenal than Brooklyn Beckham. 

Patino is part Spanish and is said by his father to adore La Liga, often watching and analysing his favourite team Barcelona. 

What do you reckon? Is 11 too young to be putting such pressure on a kid? Or are you worried your club will miss out on a future Wayne Rooney?
