Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli are expected to sign new contracts with Tottenham Hotspur following suit with manager Mauricio Pochettino and vice-captain Harry Kane who both recently committed their futures to the club, according to the Daily Mirror.
On Friday afternoon, it was announced that Kane had signed a new contract keeping him at the club until 2024, whilst Pochettino signed a deal lasting until 2023 just over two weeks ago.
Tottenham are now looking to continue to back Pochettino this summer by ensuring they maintain the club’s best players with Eriksen and Dele now set to sign new long-term contracts.
Eriksen and Dele deals
In a bid to fend off interest from Barcelona, Tottenham plan to offer Eriksen a new contract to ensure their Danish midfielder remains as the club as they prepare to move into their new stadium next season.
Pochettino held face-to-face talks with the 26-year-old last month in Copenhagen and talks between the two parties have progressed very well.
Dele is also subject to being offered a new contract following his hugely successful three-season spell at the club.
Last season, the 22-year-old managed 14 goals and 17 assists in all competitions – proving his status as one of the top young players in Europe.
Tottenham are understood to have double Kane’s current salary that will see him earn £200k-per-week plus substantial bonuses, making him the Premier League’s second highest earner.
Pochettino’s decision to sign a new contract just over three weeks ago will have somewhat influenced Kane’s decision to commit his long-term future to Spurs.
The England captain will have also been attracted by the prospect of leading his boyhood club into a new era as they return to N17 and their new stadium.
Tottenham were keen to ensure the player was earning in-line with his status as one of the top strikers on the continent, following his stellar season in which he scored 41 goals in all competitions.
Harry Kane netted 30 Premier League goals during the 2017/2018 season – just missing out on a third successive Premier League Golden Boot to Mohamed Salah of Liverpool.
