Juventus captain Alessandro del Piero is a surprise nomination for the Best Italian Player in the Oscar del Calcio.

The ceremony will be held on Monday in the annual Italian version of the PFA Awards, as they are voted for by the players throughout Serie A based on the previous calendar year.

Del Piero, Antonio Cassano (Sampdoria) and Daniele De Rossi (Roma) are up for the award.

Diego Milito leads the way for the Best Foreign Player, joined by former Milan star Kaka and ex-Inter man Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Best Young Player is an all-San Siro affair between Alexandre Pato, Mario Balotelli and Davide Santon.
