    You don't know what Arteta wants. We can only guess and we will find out by who he buys. The profile of Papa Gueye says a lot.

    Thanks for not including Gilberto Silva YT compilations in your post.

    Fernandinho seems to be hugely underrated on here as a footballer. I also find the assumption that Arteta wants to mirror Pep disrespectful. Just because both have Barca DNA doesn't mean they want to set out their teams identically. They were quite different as players.

    With Xhaka and Guendouzi already at the club, we should pass on signing Ceballos. We need a more athletic/defensively capable player at the base of our midfield. But I hope he can continue his good form into the end of the season.

    Ceballos is our best cm. Him and Torreria are the only two with world class potential in my opinion. We should be pulling out all of the stops to bring him here permanently.

    This idea of powerhouses in midfield is quite ignorant. None of the last 3 champions (I'm counting Liverpool as winners) had brutes in midfield. Is Ceballos markedly slower or less aggressive than a Wijnaldum, Cesc or David Silva?

    Whilst I agree Xhaka, Ceballos, Özil is too slow and easily bossed physically. It would be Ceballos that I'd keep!

    I'd play Torreria and Ceballos in there and add a dynamic midfielder to them. Aaron Ramsey would have been bloody perfect.

    Wijnaldum is def a better athlete than Ceballos. Cesc and Silva are tiers above Ceballos in terms of ability. At their best they also score and provide assists.

    We have too many midfielders in the team with no cutting edge.

    Not creative and then they can't even provide consistent cover for the defense.

    Slow, weak and lacking ideas in the attacking third.

    Not a good combo. Until we get rid of players like Xhaka, Mustafi, Özil and Ceballos we are not gonna move forward.

    Özil and Ceballos will always need the perfect formation and opposition to play well.

    They don't adapt and can't raise their level when things get tough.

    Ceballos has started 7 games and came on as a sub in 4, while playing in a team with zero structure, under Emery and people are adamant that he won't adapt. Lol. If any midfielder needs to be sold its Xhaka. At least Ceballos has some tricks to get by some tackles. Cazorla wasn't lightning fast but was our best midfielder so i dont see why Ceballos can't grow in the same mold.

    I in no way shape or form was comparing Ceballos ability wise to Cesc or Silva. I find it bewildering how fans think a player deemed good enough to start for Spain is not good enough to start for or be signed by us!

    Didn't Aspas start for Spain? It doesn't matter whether he plays for Spain or not. He isn't good enough and never will be because he can't run.

    I'm sick of teams running through our midfield because we have slow players. He also takes so many touches on the ball and will get found out in any tough game.

    No, I do not believe Aspas did or does frequently start for Spain, definitely not in his early 20s. He'd probably offer us more than Lacazette at the moment though.

    Time will tell, but Ceballos looks very talented and whilst I agree with you that he struggled to adapt early on and looked shell shocked vs Liverpool, I don't see why he can't adapt? He seemed to be moving the ball more quickly on Sunday.

    Athleticism is nice but things like this are simply untrue.

    Also in response to the criticism of him taking too many touches - that’s only a problem if he’s taking those touches due to poor ball control.

    That wasn’t the case for Ceballos. It was over-confidence and that can easily be changed by a good old kick up the backside, judging from his last game it’s already happened. He was crisp with his distribution.

    If he keep preforming like thos you have to get him in summer look how many times we started attack from Ceballos from deep. He is very talented player if used correctly of course his body could be weak for PL but that will surely improve

    Was really physical today, which was surprising. He's still very slow but he was well positioned today. I thought he was a bit ropey on the ball early on but he got much better. I don't think he will stay beyond this season but I'm impressed with him since returning to the lineup.

    I wouldn’t mind buying him permanently, will be better than Xhaka and Guendouzi. Him next to a more athletic DM would be ideal. Don’t think he will stay, though.

    He was good today. Not sure though when he and Xhaka kept switching sides. Not sure that helped team structure. It looked like it caused more confusion on our side than on Everton’s.

    Got really stuck in today which was great to see. Won a lot 0f tackles and tracked a lot of Everton runners. He made a few loose passes in the first half, but he tightened up and played a beauty into Auba at one point.

    Really pleased with him since his return from injury. Think there's another gear in him too.
