The award has previously been won by the likes of Anthony Martial, Paul Pogba, Sergio Agüero and Lionel Messi.

Established by Italian newspaper Tuttosport, it is voted on by sports journalists across Europe.

The young Frenchman joined Celtic this summer after his contract at Fulham expired. He’s netted 12 goals at Celtic Park, including a double in last night’s draw with Manchester City and a hat-trick in the Old Firm derby.
