Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham are all set to reward the likes of Christian Eriksen and Son Heung-Min with new contracts in order to ward off every interest from the potential suitors.
The Daily Mirror has quoted that the Lilywhites have decided to reward the duo in their “next raft of contract renewals.” The same source has added that Spurs are also keen on tying the aforementioned duo before they enter the final year of their deal, although the likes of Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Toby Alderweireld are still Tottenham’s priority.
Eriksen, who joined Tottenham for a reported £11.5million fee from Ajax back in 2013, has two years left on his current deal which sees him making £75,000-a-week at the club. Son, on the other hand, joined Tottenham from Bayer Leverkusen back in 2015 and earns £85,000-a-week.
The South Korea international is currently Tottenham’s second highest scorer this season, behind Harry Kane with 8 goals in 22 Premier League appearances. As things stand for Eriksen, he is Tottenham’s most creative outlet on the field. It is understood that Mauricio Pochettino is keen on keeping hold of his best players. While Kane, Alli and Alderweireld have been the primary personnel, Eriksen and Son are of utmost importance as well.
It was quoted earlier this month that Tottenham are already bracing themselves to enter contract negotiations with Harry Kane and Toby Alderweireld despite the fact that the former is already tied to the club until 2022. The Belgian, on the other hand, sees his contract running until 2019, but the club does have an option of extending it to another year.
As per the claims, Spurs are ready to make Kane the club’s highest earning player in the history with a reported £200,000-a-week wage pack being put on the table. As far as Alderweireld is concerned, his representatives are set to meet chairman Daniel Levy to compromise a deal. The Belgian advisor had previously warned Tottenham about his client’s future by confirming that they should better offer him a lucrative deal as there are other suitors already vying for his acquisition.
Also, Tottenham are preparing a lucrative offer for Dele Alli as well. The midfielder currently earns £60,000-a-week but the club is prepared to offer £100,000-a-week for the outstanding Englishman and with sites like https://www.unibet.com.au/racing, you can check out the latest of their offers.
The way things are looking, I think Levy is absolutely focused on making sure the club’s stars stay put. We’d be put into financial restrictions once we move into the new stadium and so it is probably wise to tie our players down to new contracts and that is exactly what Levy and Poch are trying to do.
