    Doesn't want to be here. Shone in his first game but hasn't imposed himself. I wouldn't even have extended the loan given the current financial situation.

    Even just one top midfielder can transform our team

    Fair points. I was actually quite excited by the Ceballos loan. He seemed to fit what I thought a replacement of Xhaka needed: a creative 8 with enough defensive tenacity. His weak point seemed to be that he lingered on the ball for too long and wants to do too much. Unfortunately, he hasn't really addressed those weak points and several times this season I've been shocked by his sloppy passing. Did show some improvement before the season was put on hold, though.

    He's a good player, but it hasn't clicked here. Don't want us to spend money on him, but he could still become good for a different team.

    Yeah, he isn't what this team needs. Not top class at any aspect.

    It’s hard to come from Spain as a young player and try to make an impact in your first season in England. Especially in the mess of a club we are. So I’ll give him that.

    He was extraordinary in our last game, at West Ham.

    Yeah. He was arguably our best player.

    But truth be told he's been underwhelming for most of his time here. Injuries haven't helped either

    Ye he was dreadful against Liverpool. A real reality check for him regarding the tempo of the league. And the injuries. Really hard to judge him, tbf.

    This is an excellent breakdown of this player, especially the bolded part.

    Yeh I was at the game, he played very well but he wasnt getting enough options to pass to - at least from where I was watching.

    I think some of you are being a bit harsh. The guy is still young, he was coming off a period at Madrid where he wasn't playing much and could have been low on confidence, he came into a team that was about to sink under Emery, he had a bad injury...like there are a lot of mitigating factors here. And as people acknowledge, towards the end under Arteta he was playing quite well when he was fit.

    I'm not saying he's the answer for us or he's definitely a world class midfielder, I have no idea about that. But he's widely regarded as one of the most talented young midfielders in Europe and some of you are talking about him like he's useless.

    He wasn't playing much for Madrid because he didn't impress in his chances given............. talent is worth a lot less without the mentality to be a fighter and determination to perform every match. Like you said he's a project, and we already have Guendouzi and Torreira as project players. I am not sure we have the room to keep so many inconsistent flawed players in midfield.

    Compared to the rest of our midfielders, having this guy feels like having Modric. The only midfielder in our team that can collect the ball without ****ing his pants.
    He is not the best player, but at least he is not hiding like Xhaka and Özil when we need someone on the ball.

    Weird I always thought his attitude was quite that of a fighter, he can be such a d#khead most of the time, kicking away the ball, wasting time, flying in to tackles, starting arguments when it benefits the team. Think he got a bit shocked by the liverpool press but so did the rest of the team. Think he might be good enough but we dont really have the cash for might be atm so id agree with you on moving him on unless he shows something in the enxt few weeks.

    2 games this season against really poor teams he has been good. He can play and we can see that but is he a dynamic athlete and tech genius that we need, no.

    Seems to be we always get midfielders than need mobile players around them and not mobile players.

    I’d keep him and get rid of Guendouzi, Willock or ESR for a decent fee

    I'd still buy him to be honest.

    Could possibly be, one of, if not, the worst post I've seen on AM since my debut.
