There are still some months to go till the end of the year, but former Arsenal hero and Nigeria legend Kanu Nwankwo has seen enough and has tipped Chelsea winger turn wing-back Victor Moses to beat the likes of Sadio Mane and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to the award.

He said: “Moses has proved critics wrong. It is now left for CAF to do their rating. As for me, he deserves the 2017 CAF award. Although the season is still on and no one can tell what future will be.

“The likes of Aubamayang and Sadio Mane are dangerous to compete with but I still have a strong belief in the Nigeria forward.

“Despite playing out of position at Chelsea, he finds it easy to break opponents’ defence with ease and if he keeps this fitness alive I see him becoming the next African footballer of the year.”
