Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane is in talks over a new contract with the north London club which could double his wages to £100,000 a week.
Kane signed a five-and-a-half-year contract in February but is now set to be rewarded with a new deal which would make him the biggest earner at the club.
The England striker said recently that he would like to remain a Spurs player for the rest of his career if the club can continue to match his ambitions.
Another player who is still to sign a new deal is Christian Eriksen. Mauricio Pochettino has personally intervened to help ensure the Dane igns a new contract with the club.
Eriksen and his agent had been locked in talks with Spurs since March but a breakthrough has finally been made.
The Dane is close to signing a new four-year deal at White Hart Lane, worth around £70,000 a week, which will keep him at Tottenham until 2020 and extend his current commitment by two years.
Mauricio Pochettino is said to have stepped in after growing concerned the issue was becoming a distraction for his player.
The 24-year-old, however, rejected Spurs’ first offer of fresh terms, which came significantly below the club’s top earners.
Eriksen currently earns around £35,000 a week while Hugo Lloris, Erik Lamela and Mousa Dembele are all paid around double that amount.
Lloris, Pochettino’s captain and goalkeeper, is believed to earn around £80,000 a week.
