Ballon d'Or award nominees: Gareth Bale Sergio Aguero Alisson on list”

Four other Premier League players have been named - Manchester City's Sergio Aguero and Kevin De Bruyne and Alisson and Roberto Firmino of Liverpool.

Real Madrid forward Bale is joined by Los Blancos team-mate Karim Benzema while Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani is also among the first five names to be announced by French magazine France Football.

Kane scored 41 goals in all competitions for Spurs last season before winning the Golden Boot at the World Cup with six strikes in England's run to the semi-finals.

Sergio Aguero has been nominated for the Ballon d'Or.

Eden Hazard gives Chelsea another player in the running after starring alongside De Bruyne at the World Cup, with England's Golden Boot victor Harry Kane also included.

The names are released in groups of five throughout the day, with the full 30-player shortlist eventually being drawn up ahead of the awards ceremony in Paris on 3 December.

Kante was also part of France's victorious side in Russian Federation, while Isco helped Real Madrid to win a third consecutive Champions League.

For the first time, a Ballon d'Or for women players will be awarded this year, with the nominees to be announced later Monday.

Ronaldo, now at Juventus, won the Champions League for the third season in a row with Madrid, while De Bruyne inspired Manchester City's Premier League and EFL Cup double before a strong World Cup showing.

Working their way through alphabetically, Real Madrid stars Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema have been confirmed on the list.
