Tottenham first teamer Dele Alli is set to sign a new long-term deal to retain with the club, according to a report.
The Evening Standard claims that the attacking midfielder will commit his future to the North London club and see his current £60,000-a-week deal shoot up to a contract near £100,000-a-week.
It is understood that Spurs hope that new deals for Harry Kane and Mauricio Pochettino will hope have a knock-on effect to also secure the futures of Alli, Christian Eriksen, Jan Vertonghen, Eric Dier, Son Heung-Min and Kieran Trippier.
Football Insider verdict:
Alli certainly does get his fair amount of stick both on and off the pitch, but there is no denying that he is one of the best young players around right now. The midfield creator has been a very consistent performer since he joined Spurs from MK Dons and his overall influence means he is fully deserving of a new mega contract. Many feel he didn’t enjoy the best 2017/18 season, but he managed 14 goals and supplied 17 assists in 50 appearances for his side. The England international is a technically gifted playmaker and will hope to shine for the Three Lions this summer at the World Cup in Russia. Spurs appear to be moving in the right direction by securing Pochettino, Kane and now Alli to the cause, but the situation regarding Toby Alderweireld remains bizarre. They have a core group of players that can be successful in the coming years and perhaps the new ground can be the catalyst to help them get over the line for silverware.
