Lisandro Lopez has been a revelation since his €24 million move from Portuguese powerhouse Porto to Lyon last year, scoring a highly impressive 22 goals in 45 appearances in his debut season.
The right-footed Argentinean, who holds an Italian passport, has so far scored five goals in nine matches for Lyon this season, including a goal against Benfica in the Champions League in October.
A natural leader, Lopez's high work rate means he often drops to help his defence.
Powerful and mobile, he is renowned for scoring important goals for his team and putting pressure on opposing players.
His vision and intelligent reading of the game helps him get into good goal-scoring positions.
1.75m-tall, Lopez has been capped seven times for Argentina and scored once.
