The Spain international has made an instant impression since joining on a season-long loan from Real Madrid, earning a standing ovation following his full debut against Burnley and helping to turn the tide during the north London derby prior to the international break.
Ceballos looks certain to play a major role under Emery having struggled to win the faith of Zinedine Zidane, particularly with Mesut Ozil out of favour.
Nicolas Pepe also joined in the summer for a club-record £72million fee to compliment Arsenal’s two prolific strikers Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette.
Although Pepe is yet to get off the mark, Ceballos has been impressed by the Ivory Coast international’s directness but believes Lacazette is the player with the best all round game.
‘You can compare [Pierre Emerick] Aubameyang to the style of Cristiano [Ronaldo] when he was at Madrid in the sense that he plays close to the goal and lives for scoring,’ Ceballos told the Daily Mail.
‘Pepe is very direct, and Lacazette is the best player in the team: he understands the game perfectly.’
After impressing for the Spanish national team against Romania, Ceballos is almost certain to start against Watford on Sunday but he accepts he may need to curb some of his natural inclinations if he is to be a success in the Premier League.
He said: ‘I know I need to be able to identify the moments in a game when it’s right to be the player who does something different and the moments when I have to be the player who holds his position.
‘I try to get at the opposition and make the difference. It is true though that sometimes the desire to be near the ball gets the better of me and I can lose my position. But I am young and I can improve.’
