Liverpool are unsurprisingly well-represented on the shortlist for the 2018 African Player of Year award.
Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Naby Keita have all been nominated for the accolade on the back of highly impressive seasons.
Salah and Mane are both also in the running for the BBC African Player of the Year prize, with the voting set to close on December 2.
The former won both awards last season as he helped Egypt to the African Cup of Nations final as well as their first World Cup since 1990.
All three have been named on a preliminary 34-man list of nominees, as detailed by the Confederation of African Football (CAF).

Salah shocked English football as he scored 44 goals across all competitions in his debut season at Anfield, winning the Golden Boot with 32 goals to break the record for the highest tally in a 38-game campaign.
Senegal’s Mane meanwhile enjoyed an outstanding year on Merseyside as he notched 20 goals across all competitions to play an instrumental role in helping the Reds secure another top four finish in the league and a spot in the Champions League final.
Guinea’s Keita also warrants place among the candidates after a bright campaign ahead of his move from RB Leipzig.
The winner will be announced on Tuesday January 8.
