Rachid Ghezzal    M    Lyon
Ghezzal managed eight goals and eight assists despite starting in just 21 of his 37 appearances this season.

Fantasy Analysis

Ghezzal earned additional minutes with strong play as the season went along, culminating in his explosion for six goals and four assists as he started nine of the final 10 matches. Lyon will be keen to keep Ghezzal around after he blossomed into a productive starter, but they may have to ward off suitors from around Europe who are interested in their young star.
Edinson Cavani    F    Paris Saint-Germain
Cavani, wanted by a number of clubs such as Arsenal and Manchester United, closed Ligue 1 with four goals in the last three matches. He finished the campaign with 19 goals and five assists.

Fantasy Analysis

Cavani had another solid season playing for the dominant PSG. He has the chance to move elsewhere, but if Zlatan Ibrahimovic moves on from PSG, he could become their top forward at 29 years old.
Thiago Silva    D    Paris Saint-Germain
Silva is 31 years old, but still kicking strong at the head of a dominant PSG back line that only allowed 19 league goals this past season.

Fantasy Analysis

Silva has had plenty of success at PSG, but has said he would be open to a move to Barcelona if the opportunity presented itself. Even with success at PSG, Silva and teammate David Luiz were not called up to Brazil's preliminary Copa America squad.
Hatem Ben Arfa    M    Nice
Ben Arfa enjoyed a stellar season for Nice, finishing with 17 goals and six assists while making 33 league starts.

Fantasy Analysis

The 29-year-old languished in five seasons in England, never scoring more than five times in any one campaign, but he thrived in his return to France and ascended to sixth in the race for the Golden Boot. Ben Arfa's contract is up at the end of June and has drawn the ire of some major clubs from around Europe, making it increasingly unlikely that he suits up for Nice again next season.
Valere Germain    F    Nice
Germain enjoyed a successful loan season for Nice, finishing with 14 goals and six assists while appearing in every league match.

Fantasy Analysis

The 26-year-old finished seventh in the league in scoring, finishing the season with an impressive run of six goals and two assists in his final 10 matches. Germain is still property of Monaco, and has stated that he is not opposed to returning to the club where he still has a two-year contract, but he has not ruled out another season at Nice.
Ryad Boudebouz    M    Montpellier
Boudebouz shined in his first season at Montpellier, scoring a pair of goals and adding 11 assists, which ranked third in Ligue 1.

Fantasy Analysis

Montpellier disappointingly finished 12th in the table, but they did rank seventh in the league with 48 goals scored thanks to Boudebouz, who had a hand in nearly a third of those. The Algerian signed on for four years last summer, and he should be an integral part of the first XI next year.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic    F    Paris Saint-Germain
Ibrahimovic confirmed that he plans to leave Paris Saint-Germain at the end of the summer, reports Sky Sports.

Fantasy Analysis

The star striker's last match with the club will be the French Cup Final on May 21st against Marseille. He did not give any indication of which club he would move to, but leaves the club having won four consecutive titles.
Wissam Ben Yedder    F    Toulouse
Yedder scored a goal on two shots during Saturday's 3-2 loss to Lyon.

Fantasy Analysis

The 25-year-old now has four goals and two assists in his last three games, and his recent tear has seen him equal his career-high for Ligue 1 goals in a season. Yedder will look to achieve a new career-high this weekend when Toulouse travels to take on Saint Etienne.
Alexandre Lacazette    F    Lyon
Lacazette stayed red hot during Saturday's 3-2 win over Toulouse, scoring on his only shot and adding an assist from two key passes.

Fantasy Analysis

Last season's French Golden Boot winner has caught fire with the current campaign winding down, as he has eight goals and three assists in his last eight matches. Lacazette is showing no signs of slowing down at the moment, and he will look to keep it rolling versus Ajaccio this weekend.
Wissam Ben Yedder    F    Toulouse
Yedder attempted two shots and scored the opening goal during Saturday's 1-1 draw Lorient.

Fantasy Analysis

Yedder put his side up when he tucked home a Tongo Doumbia pass in the 49th minute, giving him his 15th goal of the season. The 25-year-old, who has also tied his career-high with five assists, will look to equal his best total of 16 goals when Toulouse take on Lyon this weekend.
