Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris has been nominated for both the Ballon d'Or and Yashin Awards as France Football announced its lists of nominees on Monday.

The Tottenham goalkeeper has been listed among 30 nominees for the main award and 10 nominees for the best goalkeeper award, named after Lev Yashin, the only 'keeper to have won the Ballon d'Or in 1963.

Four Premier League-based players are in the running for the 'keeper award, with Liverpool's Alisson Becker, Manchester City's Ederson and Chelsea's Kepa Arrizabalaga in the running alongside Lloris.

The six other candidates include Bayern Munich's Manuel Neuer, Inter Milan's Samir Handanovic, Atletico Madrid's Jan Oblak, Ajax's Andre Onana, Juventus' Wojciech Szczesny and Barcelona's Marc-Andre Ter Stegen.
