Senegal international Kalidou Koulibaly has been named in the Serie A Team of the Year by the Italian Footballers' Association for the third campaign in succession.
The 27-year-old was rewarded with a spot in the 11 following another outstanding campaign for Napoli in which he found the back of the net on five occasions in 35 matches.
Koulibaly, who has also been nominated for the BBC African Player of the Year award, recently signed a contract extension that will keep him contracted to the club until 2023.
This, though, hasn't stopped Manchester United who are reportedly interested in signing the burly centre-back following a disappointing start to the season.
Koulibaly helped Napoli to 19 cleans sheets and a second placed finish in the league last season, with rivals Juventus claiming yet another league crown.
Serie A team of the 2018-19 season:
Alisson (Roma); Cancelo (Inter), Koulibaly (Napoli), Chiellini (Juventus), Alex Sandro (Juventus); Pjanic (Juventus), Milinkovic-Savic (Lazio), Nainggolan (Roma); Dybala (Juventus); Icardi (Inter), Immobile (Lazio).
