With the 2012 European Championships only two months away and most domestic leagues in Europe ending their season in the next month, it is time to focus on the players who have been dominating at the club level and who will hopefully dominate at the international level this summer.
We all know what teams to look out for in Poland and Ukraine this summer, but what players should fans have an eye on?
Here are 15 players that fans should not only should keep an eye on but opposing teams should as well, as these 15 players are also in great form heading into the tournament.
It would be a crime if Robin van Persie was not on this list.
The Dutch forward has been on fire all season for Arsenal, and has been the best player in the Premier League.
Van Persie scored 33 goals in all competitions this season and will most likely eclipse 40 by the end of the English season.
Klaas-Jan Huntelaar has been flying under the radar this season at Schalke, but his goal-scoring form could be compared to that of van Persie.
Huntelaar has 43 total goals this season, including 14 in the Europa League and 24 in the German Bundesliga.
A forward combination of Huntelaar and van Persie could be deadly in Group B—otherwise known as this year's Group of Death.
If you are looking for a young player to watch in the Euro 2012 tournament, look no further than Sweden's John Guidetti.
Guidetti, on loan at Feyenoord from Manchester City, has lit the Eredivisie on fire with 19 goals in 21 appearances.
With experienced forwards up front for Sweden like Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Johan Elmander, it is unknown how much playing time Guidetti will get.
One thing is for sure, Guidetti could be the answer to Manchester City's personnel problems, and he could make an impact on the Premier League next season.
The 2011-12 season has already been a breakout season for Fernando Llorente, and a spot in Spain's starting lineup in June could continue his amazing year.
Llorente has been on the fringe of the Spain squad for a while now, but this summer is the perfect opportunity for the Athletic Bilbao forward who has 26 goals in all competitions.
With David Villa still injured and Fernando Torres in horrific form, Llorente could be the man that manager Vicente Del Bosque needs up front in Poland and Ukraine.
Wojciech Szczesny has been the answer to Arsenal's goalkeeping troubles, and could be the man that helps Poland advance out of Group A.
Szczesny has recorded 11 clean sheets in the Premier League this season, including his most recent one on Sunday against Manchester City.
The 21-year-old has stepped up throughout the season for the Gunners and he will get a chance to begin a legacy with Poland if he can help the co-hosts advance to the knockout stage.
The German No. 1 keeper has had a career season at Bayern Munich since his move from Schalke was completed last summer.
Earlier this season, Neuer held a streak of over 1000 minutes without conceding a goal.
The 26-year-old will be counted on by his country to come up with some big saves early on in the tournament in the Group of Death which contains top attacking teams like Holland, Portugal and Denmark.
Phil Jones may be the youngest player on England's roster heading into the Euro 2012 tournament but he is one of the most talented players entering Poland and Ukraine.
In his first season at Manchester United, Jones has not only proved his worth on defense but he has also played well in the midfield when needed this season.
With an older group of Three Lions players entering the tournament, whoever the England manager is should take a shot with Jones in the center of midfield if injuries begin to pile up.
Sebastian Larsson has been quite a find for management at Sunderland in the English Premier League and his move to the Northeast of England has benefited both parties involved.
Larsson has been an integral part of the Black Cats midfield this season after joining the club from relegated Birmingham in the summer.
The 26-year-old will be part of one the most underrated mid fields at the tournament on a Sweden team that could do some damage.
The French may have found their next great goal scorer in Olivier Giroud.
The 25-year-old Montpellier forward has helped his club reach the top of Ligue 1 this season.
Giroud has scored 18 goals in 27 league matches and is sure to be one of the forwards to feature in Les Bleus lineup in June.
Juan Mata has made an instant impact at Chelsea after moving from Valencia in the summer.
Mata has been a key player on the wing with 11 assists in Premier League play and has broken into the national team as well.
The 23-year-old midfielder already has 16 caps for Spain and he netted two goals in Euro qualifiers last year.
Christian Eriksen is one of the top young players in Europe that you should know about.
Eriksen, 20, has been a member of Ajax's first team since 2009 and is leading the club in assists this season with 16 in 28 Eredivisie games.
A strong performance with Denmark at Euro 2012 could give Eriksen a big money deal out of Amsterdam and into one of the top leagues in Europe.
Nikica Jelavic has been in form regardless of whom he has been playing for this season.
The Croatian forward started the season at Rangers before transferring to Everton in January.
Between the two clubs, Jelavic has 22 goals in all competitions and has made an instant impact no matter where he is playing.
Jelavic will be part of a deep Croatian attack that includes experienced players like Ivica Olic and Eduardo.
He may not be able to take to the pitch until England's third game of Euro 2012, but Wayne Rooney has been in form for Manchester United on their way to the Europa League title.
Rooney has scored 22 goals in 28 appearances for the Red Devils and England will be banking on that form to stay until he returns from his suspension.
The 26-year-old will also be able to be an influence for England's young forwards that have to step up in his absence for the first two games of the tournament.
Mario Gomez has taken over as the top scoring threat for club and country,
With Bayern Munich, Gomez has scored 25 goals in 28 appearances and he scored seven times with Germany in 2011.
With Miroslav Klose getting older and Lukas Podolski out of the squad for now, Gomez is the top threat up front for the Germans heading into Poland and Ukraine.
It would not be a slideshow about in form players without mentioning Cristiano Ronaldo.
Ronaldo has scored 49 goals in all competitions for Real Madrid and is close to winning La Liga and the UEFA Champions League.
At 27, Ronaldo has the captain's armband for Portugal and will be looking to fire his country past the group of death that includes Germany, Denmark and Holland.
