Over the past week, multiple reports have indicated that Spurs are keen to tie Heung-min Son to a new contract and reward the South Korean for his improved performances with a pay rise (Telegraph).
The Athletic even revealed that the club were close to agreeing on a new deal with the in-form forward and suggested that club captain Hugo Lloris could be next in line for an extension once Son agrees on a deal.
The Daily Mail have now claimed that two players who looked to be out of favour not too long ago, Erik Lamela and Serge Aurier, could also be in line to receive new deals.
Aurier was heavily linked with a move away from North London in the summer (RMC Sport) but not only did the Ivorian end up staying but he has been in good form at the start of the campaign, starting the last two league matches ahead of summer signing, Matt Doherty.
Meanwhile, Lamela was also suggested as a player Spurs could cash-in on during the transfer window (Daily Star) but he too appears to have an important role to play in the squad.
The Mail claims that with both players’ current contracts expiring in the summer of 2022, the club could soon hold talks with the pair. However, it is suggested that extensions are not imminent in either Lamela’s or Aurier’s case.

Now that Jose’s had a good look at the squad last season, as well as during pre-season, it looks like the club are now moving to tie down the players that he sees as part of his plans. I can certainly see Lamela signing an extension as he seems to epitomise the kind of squad players Jose wants, while Aurier could also be in line for an extension if he maintains his current run of form.
