Peru's captain Paolo Guerrero is among the three finalists competing to be crowned the new King of the Americas, Uruguayan newspaper El País reported.
The national soccer team's top striker —and current Flamengo star— will fight for the award against
Gremio FBPA's players Arthur and Luan Vieira.
The three athletes have become the most voted
nominees by the continent's sports journalists, according to El País.
As is known, the journal has been picking the best players in the Americas since 1986, with the help of a survey conducted among the continent's most renowned sports journalists, which is also open to the public this year.
It must be noted Peru's coach Ricardo Gareca is also nominated to become The Americas' Best Coach.
The-59-year-old is competing in such category against Ariel Holan and Tite to succeed Reinaldo Rueda.
