1. Riyad Mahrez
Is it possible for a player who cost just £350,000 to become the best player in the Premier League this season? Quite simply, yes. Riyad Mahrez has taken the division by storm and has assisted or scored 26 goals in 28 appearances, which is more than the likes of Dimitri Payet, Romelu Lukaku and Mesut Ozil.
The Algerian has been able to showcase his talent and ability in every aspect of the game and has formed the most formidable partnership with striker Jamie Vardy. Mahrez has already been subject to plenty of transfer speculation; with it being rumoured that Arsenal, Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona are after the winger, so Leicester will certainly find it challenging to keep hold of their star man.
