Lookman, who is on loan from RB Leipzig in the Bundesliga, has been nominated for the first time.
They will compete for the individual prize against AS Roma's Lorenzo Pellegrini and Feyenoord's Luis Sinisterra.

The 27-year-old bagged a brace as De Club aan de Maas defeated Marseille 3-2 in the first leg of their semi-final first leg clash at the Stadion Feijenoord "De Kuip" – Rotterdam on Thursday night.

Dessers, who is on loan at Feyenoord from Belgian Pro League outfit Club Brugge, is now the top scorer in the Europa Conference League with 10 goals.
