Aged only 22, Moses is already at his fourth club. And his latest move - on loan at Liverpool from Chelsea - could determine whether he goes on to enjoy a stellar career. The Nigeria international has all the attributes needed to make a huge impact; he has pace to burn, an eye for goal and he is versatile enough to play as a traditional wide man or through the middle as a striker.
Fellow nominees include Yaya Toure, Jonathan Pitroipa, Jon Obi Mikel and Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang. The winner will be announced during a live edition of Focus on Africa on BBC World Service and BBC World News at 17:35 GMT on 2 December, 2013.
