Alhassan was so outstanding to beat three other nominees for the top individual prize as Antwerp have won all seven league matches this season to sit top of the table with 21 points.
They are five points clear of closest rivals Genk.
Alhassan, 22, has grown into a top box-to-box midfielder in his second season in Belgium following his transfer from Swedish club IFK Goteborg.
He has played every minute of the seven wins under new coach Mark van Bommel.
