I kinda like him more advanced. He’s pretty decent technically, has good instincts, and is a big plus defensively when pressing. Vidal played a similar role with Pirlo, Pogba, and Marchisio back in the day.
Some good like the dummy for Morata's goal (assuming he meant it) and some bad with a few very poor giveaways. I prefer him in the attacking role away from the midfield two as I'm not convinced he has the positional sense for those roles and seems good at picking up space in attacking areas.
