Left-back: Ashley Young (Inter Milan)

He also scored his fourth goal of the Serie A campaign and helped keep a clean sheet as the Nerazzuri recorded a comfortable 2-0 win.
Central midfielder: Erick Pulgar (Fiorentina)

Striker: Antonio Sanabria (Genoa)
Antonio Sanabria scored when his team needed him the most. The on-loan striker from Real Betis was simply outstanding as his first-half brace helped Genoa to a 3-0 win over Hellas Verona; Genoa finished 17th and avoid relegation. The Paraguayan international finished the season with six goals in 24 Serie A appearances.
Striker: Dries Mertens (Napoli)
Dries Mertens, who is Napoli’s all-time highest goalscorer, did not have a great season by his own standards as he could not finish with double figures in front of goal for the first time in four campaigns. The Belgian ace didn’t score against Lazio but tormented the Eagles with his linkup play as he managed to provide two assists as Napoli comfortably won 3-1.
