Past winners include Lionel Messi, Wayne Rooney and Kylian Mbappe, with Atletico Madrid forward Joao Felix having claimed the award last year. Haaland is the first Scandinavian player to win it.

Haaland joined Dortmund from FC Salzburg in January after a stunning start to the season in which he scored 28 goals in 22 matches. He scored eight times as the Austrian side crashed out of the Champions League in the group stage.

He scored a hat trick on his Champions League debut as well as goals in each of his first five outings and became the competition’s highest-scoring teenager in a single season.

The 20-year-old continued his incredible form with another treble on his Dortmund bow, which helped Lucien Favre’s side come from 3-1 down to beat Augsburg 5-3.

Haaland finished the last campaign with 29 goals in all competitions and was sixth in the race for the European Golden Shoe — level with Messi. He has 11 goals in 11 games for Dortmund in all competitions so far this season.
