Roy Krishna is set to be among the most sought-after players in the A-League off-season, after winning the Johnny Warren Medal as the league's top player in 2018/19.
It clinched a competition double for the Fiji international, who had finished two goals clear of Adam Le Fondre to claim the Golden Boot award at the end of the regular season.
Wellington Phoenix want to keep hold of the striker, whose 18-goal tally broke the club record of Jeremy Brockie.
They are understood to have made the 31-year-old a lucrative offer, but he is attracting interest from around the league for a big-money marquee deal.
Krishna becomes the Phoenix's third winner of the Johnny Warren Medal, following Shane Smeltz in 2008-09 and Nathan Burns in 2014-15.
He is reported to have rejected an offer from expansion club Western United, while Sydney FC and Western Sydney Wanderers are also chasing his signature.
Krishna won the player of the season award ahead of Adelaide United's Isaias – who played every minute of his team's 27 games – and Perth Glory's Neil Kilkenny, who were tied for second.
Keisuke Honda of Melbourne Victory, who is leaving at the end of his only campaign with Kevin Muscat's team, was equal-fourth despite only playing 18 goals during the season due to injury.
Despite making the Finals Series under coach Mark Rudan – who has returned to Australia after just one season in charge – Wellington look poised to lose both of the players who won A-League honours.
Keeper Filip Kurto, who was named goalkeeper of the year, is set to link up with Western United.
Ahead of Chris Ikonomidis' bid to win the Grand Final with Perth Glory against Sydney FC this weekend, the Australia international was named the A-League under-23 player of the year.
Glory coach Tony Popovic received the A-League coach of the year award for the second time.
Perth Glory are 4/5 to win the Grand Final.
The Glory are 6/5 to win in 90 minutes, with Sydney FC 9/4 and the draw 12/5.
