Tottenham reportedly enter talks with £55k-a-week mainstay, Poch masterstroke is in full swing
Tottenham are reportedly in talks with playmaker Dele Alli about a new contract and the future is looking extremely bright under manager Mauricio Pochettino.
The Daily Mail claims that Spurs are looking to tie the 22-year-old down to a new deal after Harry Kane signed a fresh £200,000-a-week six year contract with them.
Statistics site Spotrac claims that Alli currently has a £55,000-a-week contract with the North London club and it is set to expire in 2022.
Alli could be the next player to commit themselves to Spurs and he is arguably the club’s second most valuable player behind centre-forward Kane.
Pochettino has managed to take his current group of players to top-four regular in the past few years and it all now all about pushing on to the next level.

They now need to be aspiring to win silverware and it could just take their first success to trigger a regular run of trophies.
Kane confirming his stay for the long-term future is colossal, but the same would have to be said for his England teammate if it comes true.
Alli is one of the best young players in world football and is someone that supporters would pay good money to go watch.
The creative playmaker was directly involved in 31 goals in 50 appearances across all competitions in the 2017/18 season and his dazzling display against Real Madrid in the group stages proves he can do it against the very best.
He deserves to be rewarded with a mega deal to ensure he stays around and he could be the heartbeat of the side for the next decade if the pieces fall into the right places.
It is a Pochettino masterstroke to ensure that his key players are committed to the long-term goal and that will allow him to strengthen this summer around them.
