Awarded every year by France Football magazine, the Ballon d'Or victor will be announced on December 3.
The 19-year-old striker was in unstoppable form as Paris Saint-Germain thrashed Lyon 5-0 on Sunday night to become the first team in Ligue 1 history to start the season with nine straight wins. He is only 19 years and 9 months old.
With this win, Thomas Tuchel's side maintained their 100% record in the league and sit pretty at the top of the table, eight points clear off second-placed Lille after nine matches.
PSG were however reduced to ten men as defender Presnel Kimpembe was shown a red card after the VAR spotted he had caught Lyon's Tanguy Ndombele's shin with his studs.
The France global and World Cup victor also became the youngest player - at 19 years and nine months - to score four goals in one game in the same amount of time.
Mbappe raced to reach a loose ball, and visiting goalkeeper Anthony Lopes needlessly charged off his line to bring down the teenager.

France global Kimpembe was given a straight red card by the referee after consultation with the Video Assistant Referee (VAR), who advised a dismissal as the defender had caught Tanguy Ndombele in the shin with his studs.
In reality, a look at Mbappe's highlights against Lyon shows that far from there being any tension between the two, he should actually be grateful to Neymar for setting up three of his four goals.
OL should have equalized early in the second period, but Maxwel Cornet contrived to miskick with the goal at his mercy. "In the first half we suffered a bit but we managed to take control of the match and enjoy our quality on the field".
Five minutes later, he drilled home the ball after it ricocheted around the Lyonnais penalty area. PSG midfielder Marquinhos collected the ball and navigated a tight space in the box during that sequence.
He was not done there, though, as he pounced to slam home his fourth with 16 minutes left after Neymar had seen a low shot blocked.
