Stones experienced a renaissance after falling out of favor with Pep Guardiola before, while Dias, who was the club’s record signing last summer, is widely regarded as City’s most important addition to the squad.

De Bruyne’s creativity once again impressed despite being injured, while Gundogan’s 13 goals and two assists made him a standout player.

If he has his way, Kane would join those six stars at City after a brilliant personal season with an average Tottenham team.

The England captain, who has told Spurs he plans to leave this summer, won the Golden Boot for the third time with 23 goals and also topped the assist list with 14.

His link-up play with Son Heung-min was a driving force behind Spurs’ climb to the top of the table at Christmas and the South Korean is also voted in.

Son’s 17 goals and 10 assists were his best ever performance and the 14 times he paired with Kane is a Premier League record, beating Alan Shearer and Chris Sutton 13 in 1994-95.
