KOPA TROPHY NOMINATES

Bukayo Saka (Arsenal), Jude Bellingham (Dortmund), Karim Adeyemi (Dortmund), Eduardo Camavinga (Real Madrid), Gavi (Barcelona), Ryan Gravenberch (Bayern Munich), Nuno Mendes (PSG), Jamal Musaila (Bayern Munich), Josko Gvardiol (RB Leipzig) and Florian Wirtz (Bayern Leverkusen)

The Arsenal winger enjoyed a stellar campaign for Mikel Arteta’s side last year, scoring 11 goals and seven assists as The Gunners finished in 5th place.

Saka has become an integral part of Arteta’s squad since breaking through to the first team in 2019 – scoring 23 goals in 123 appearances so far.

The 20-year-old won Arsenal’s Player of the Season award for 2021-22 and is hoping to pick up another individual accolade tonight.

Despite his success, Real Madrid’s Eduardo Camavinga seems most likely to claim the award, having played a pivotal role in Los Blancos’ success in the Champions League last year.
