Chelsea star midfielder N’Golo Kante, and winger Eden Hazard and Man United supremo Zlatan Ibrahimovic, headline the stellar names of premier league stars nominated by the English Professional Footballers Association (PFA) for the 2016/017 player of the year award.
The six man shortlist includes Alexis Sánchez, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Romelu Lukaku, Eden Hazard, N’Golo Kante and Harry Kane.
N’Golo Kante, nominated for the same award last year could actually win it this year after his snub last year in Leicester City’s glorious fairy tale Premier league win.
Eden Hazard won the award two years ago under Jose Mourinho at Chelsea and could also scoop it this year.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic is the true definition of ‘fine wine getting better with age’ as his 17 premier league goals for Man United has seen the club maintain a push for the top four spot at the age of 35.
The winner will be announced at Grosvenor House in London on Sunday, 23 April.
