The Senegalese is playing a key role for Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool this season. On Wednesday, he scored a big goal against Villarreal in the Champions League semifinals.
It is worth a mention that the forward also won the Africa Cup of Nations with Senegal this season.
Overall, the 30-year-old has netted 20 goals in 44 appearances for Liverpool this term.
The 2022 Ballon d’Or ceremony will take place in October. The best player of the 2021-22 season will get the prize.
