13 Fedor Smolov, Russia (7.51)
With an average of 3.9 shots per game on his way to top scoring in the league with 20 goals for Krasnodar last season, as well as contributing seven assists, the player earned a place up front in WhoScored's Team of the Season in the Russian top flight.
12 Nani, Portugal (7.52)
The wide man was in eye-catching form on the wing for Fenerbahce last season, with the 29-year-old contributing eight assists on his way to an average rating of 7.52, form which saw him selected in WhoScored's Team of the Season in the Turkish top flight.
11 Harry Kane, England (7.52)
Having finished last season as the Premier League's top scorer with 25 goals for Spurs, while also attempting an average of 4.2 shots per top-flight game, the striker is expected to lead England's attack at this summer's European championship.
10 Robert Lewandowski, Poland (7.58)
The centre-forward's 30 goals for Bayern Munich made him last season's Bundesliga top marksman, as well as the fifth highest scorer in any of Europe's top five leagues. And it is that kind of lethal form in front of goal that will make the Poland international one of the most feared frontmen at Euro 2016.
9 Pontus Wernbloom, Sweden (7.60)
Sweden's experienced midfielder was a rock in the centre of the park as CSKA Moscow won the league last season. And the 29-year-old received the second-highest average rating in the Premier League, while also making WhoScored's Team of the Season in the Russian top flight.
8 N'Golo Kante, France (7.62)
The holding midfielder played an integral role as Leicester won their maiden Premier League title last season, while the 25-year-old was also chosen in WhoScored's Team of the Season in the English top flight. As a result, the player won his first French cap against Netherlands in March and is now in line to start for the hosts at Euro 2016.
7 Mesut Ozil, Germany (7.66)
No one in any of Europe's top five leagues contributed more assists than the Arsenal midfielder's 19 last season, making the 27-year-old one of the world champions' most important players in France this summer.
6 Mousa Dembele, Belgium (7.69)
WhoScored gave the Tottenham midfielder an average rating of 7.69 last season, the fourth highest in the Premier League as the Belgium international earned a starting spot in their Team of the Season.
5 Dimitri Payet, France (7.73)
The midfielder contributed 12 assists for West Ham last season - the third most in the Premier League - on his way to achieving WhoScored's second-highest average rating in the English top flight. As a result of that impressive form in his debut campaign at Upton Park, the 29-year-old was recalled to the French team in March and may now start for the hosts at Euro 2016.
4 Paul Pogba, France (7.80)
Pogba was the highest-ranked performer in Serie A last season after producing on average 3.5 shots per game and contributing 12 assists, the joint most in the league. Consequently, the 23-year-old was selected in central midfield in WhoScored's Team of the Season and the Frenchman will also be vital to the hosts' chances at Euro 2016 this summer.
3 Cristiano Ronaldo, Portugal (8.00)
No one in Europe's top five leagues averaged more than the Real Madrid forward's 6.3 shots per game in La Liga last season. Meanwhile, the Portuguese also scored 51 goals in all competitions for the sixth campaign in a row for Los Blancos, the first player to ever achieve that feat.
2 Gareth Bale, Wales (8.12)
The Real Madrid forward was rated the fourth best player in Europe by WhoScored last season after recording an impressive 19 goals and 10 assists in La Liga, while also helping the Spaniards win the European Cup for the 11th time in their history.

Sweden's captain is WhoScored's highest-ranked player at Euro 2016 on the back of yet another brilliant campaign for Ligue 1 champions PSG.
