Jordan Pickford, goalkeeper for England and Everton, where his contract expires in 2024, as for Lloris at Tottenham.
Pickford, 28, does not seem inclined to extend at the Toffees, 18th in the Premier League. Especially since clubs, including Tottenham, would give him a chance to play in Europe. Lloris, 36 and captain of the France team, should remain under pressure throughout January, by the end of the transfer window.
