Algeria forward Riyad Mahrez is favorite to be crowned African Footballer of the Year for 2016 on the back of his contribution to Leicester City's shock English Premier League title win.The Confederation of African Football (CAF) title would make it a hat-trick of wins for the 25-year-old, who has already been named PFA players' player of the year and BBC African player of the year.In the running for the CAF title are reigning footballer of the year, Borussia Dortmund's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang of Gabon, and the Liverpool and Senegal star Sadio Mane.The mercurial Mane became the most expensive African player when he moved to Liverpool for a transfer fee of £34 million last year.African champions Mamelodi Sundowns have two players –Khama Billiat of Zimbabwe and Denis Onyango from Uganda – in the running for the best African-based player.
