According to The London Evening Standard, Dele Alli is set to be the next Tottenham star to sign a new long-term contract after Harry Kane penned a six-year deal on Friday.
Tottenham want Alli to similarly commit his future to the club and they also aim to secure the futures of Christian Eriksen, Jan Vertonghen, Eric Dier, Son Heung-Min and Kieran Trippier before next season.
The article adds that the club hopes Kane’s commitment and Mauricio Pochettino’s new five-year deal will create a domino effect.
World Cup-bound Alli currently pockets around £60,000 a week on the six-year deal he signed in September 2016, however, Spurs are willing to hand him a significant pay-rise and take him closer to £100,000 per week.
The 22-year-old faced repeated criticism last season after failing to hit the same goal-scoring heights of the 2016-17 campaign,however, he still finished the season with nine goals and 10 assists in the Premier League as Spurs finished third.
The future of Toby Alderweireld is still up in the air with Manchester United favourites to sign the Belgian, and are prepared to give the Belgian the £150k-a-week wage demands, but Daniel Levy is playing hardball and United have lined up three alternatives in case their pursuit for Alderweireld fails.
