#4. Kylian Mbappe

Paris Saint-Germain v Celtic FC - UEFA Champions League
The attacker has also become a strong contender for the Ballon d'Or

Paris Saint Germain prodigy, Kylian Mbappe is another Frenchman on the list of superstars who could challenge Cristiano Ronaldo in the race to be named the best footballer in the world this year.

Even though he did impress at the Parc des Princes last term bagging an incredible 21 goals and 15 assists in all competitions and helping the Parisians to claim a domestic treble, it was during the World Cup that took place in Russia recently that the attacker actually cemented his place among the Ballon d'Or contenders.

Mbappe was a big revelation throughout the tournament, tormenting opposition defenses with his electrifying pace, spectacular dribbling skills, and amazing goalscoring knack. He helped his nation to win the prestigious World Cup trophy as well as claiming the Silver Ball for his brilliant displays and he could as well repeat such a feat in the Ballon d'Or race this year.
