There is still transfer business to be done although we’re getting closer to the start of the 2017/18 Premier League season and it’s time to sniff out some value for PFA Player of the Year.

Here’s the deal. In the previous three seasons, the winning player has been part of a Premier League-winning campaign, with Eden Hazard, Riyad Mahrez and N’Golo Kante polling the most votes.

However, there have been plenty of winners who have not won a championship medal that particular season, including Luis Suarez, Gareth Bale and Robin van Persie (who won his 2012 award while at Arsenal).

Kante was the first “defensive” player to win the award since John Terry in 2005, so it’s safe to say that an attacking player is more likely to feature on the shortlist and also win.

Eden Hazard and Harry Kane head the market although we’re happy to ignore both. Everyone knows about Hazard’s excellent ability although it might take another Chelsea title win for him to triumph.

Kane is a guaranteed goal machine but perhaps his scoring record and all-round team contribution is simply not glamorous enough for him to edge out the competition.

Manchester City are the title favourites and it makes sense to consider their players as a result. Being able to back Gabriel Jesus at 25/1 looks very attractive considering how much impact the young Brazilian had in his handful of games last term.

Pep Guardiola clearly loves a player who could take the Premier League by storm and we’re happy to pile in at those prices.

However, we can afford to back a couple more players at these sort of fancy prices and there’s no denying that Paul Pogba is a popular player with fans and fellow players alike.

Pogba wasn’t mightily effective in his first season back at Manchester United, although the Frenchman was largely class during his four years with Juventus and there’s every chance he will blossom into something special next term.

Finally, we’re going to back Dele Alli after he scooped the Young Player of the Year award. Tottenham might be restricted by having to play home matches at Wembley, although this young man is open to further improvement and perhaps he’ll be the first English winner since Wayne Rooney in 2010.
