10 best midfielders in world football at the moment
Midfielders are arguably the most important of all the footballing positions, as they are forever involved in the game, whether it be attack or defence.
We have seen some fantastic midfield performances this season, with plenty of defence-splitting passes and coupled with fantastic defensive performances as well.
Here are the 10 best midfielders in football right now:
Note: Performances from the current season are coupled with a midfielder's stature to decide the ranking.
#10 Nabil Fekir - Lyon
The midfielder currently taking Ligue 1 by storm, Nabil Fekir has ensured that Olympique Lyonnais have not felt the departure of Alexandre Lacazette too deeply, with the left-footed attacking midfielder now playing further up the pitch and getting amongst the goals this season, including some absolute stunners.
With 12 goals and 3 assists this season from just 15 appearances in all competitions so far, Fekir is one of the best midfielders in Europe, sparking off rumours of a move to the Premier League (Arsenal) and La Liga (Barcelona).
If they need an endorsement, here is national teammate Laurent Koscielny on the Lyon midfielder, "Nabil has got huge technical skills. He’s a bit like Messi with his small steps when he runs with the ball in a one-on-one. He’s able to make a difference on the pitch, with a good one-on-one or an assist or a goal."
If he continues in the same vein, it won't be long before he moves up this list.
