Yilmaz produced one of the best Ligue 1 seasons on a personal level. Yilmaz was the catalyst for Lille’s push for Ligue 1 title.

Can he keep up this form in the upcoming season?
4. Georginio Wijnaldum
The Dutch midfielder will have all eyes on him as he joins Liverpool. Opting to join PSG over Barcelona, can the former Champions League and Premier League winner boost PSG to a UCL glory?
The Brazilian has been at the centre of everything since joining PSG. With a personal motive to win the Champions League with the French side, he has come close but not close enough. Criticized and praised at the same time, the fans still have mixed feelings about him.
2. Kylian Mbappe
He is the star of the future, already considered one of the best football players in the world. Mbappe will be the key player to PSG success. His pace and ability to get behind the defence have caused trouble many times. The 22-year-old will like to start on a high after a disappointing Euros.
