- Frenchman N'Golo Kante has made the final six shortlist for the 2017 PFA award
- The 26-year-old has been in good form this season for Chelsea
- Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is also among the final nominees
Chelsea star N'Golo Kante has been nominated for 2017 PFA player of the year award after his superb performances this season for the Blues.
The Frenchman has been in great form for the Blues this term and he is among the reason Chelsea are currently topping the Premier League standings.
But Kante will now have to face serious competition from the likes of Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez, Romelu Lukaku, Eden Hazard, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Harry Kane for the award.
Manchester United star Zlatan Ibrahimovic has also been of great help this term to the Red Devils and he has already helped them to win a title this season.
NAIJ.com can report that Algerian international Riyad Mahrez won the award last season after a remarkable campaign with current English champions Leicester City.
