Tottenham have revived talks with Harry Kane on a new £110,000-a-week contract, Football Insider sources understand.
Spurs began preliminary discussions before Euro 2016 with the Spurs talisman about tying him down to a new agreement.
A well-placed Tottenham source has told Football Insider that the club have re-opened negotiations with their star player in recent weeks about improved terms in a bid to thrash out an agreement.
Football Insider revealed in March that Spurs were keen to tie Kane, 23, down to a lucrative new contract that will make him the best-paid player in the club’s history.

The north Londoners have offered Kane a stunning £110,000-a-week deal that would run until 2021 if, as expected, an agreement can be reached.
Tottenham are working on deals to tie down the team’s senior players as well as the emerging stars to new agreements.
Christian Eriksen and Eric Dier have both signed new five-year contracts in the last week, while academy graduates Tom Carroll and Harry Winks both committed to extended deals on Friday.
Kane had a disappointing Euro 2016 and has had a slow start to the new season, scoring just one goal from Tottenham’s opening five matches.
But the striker has had two consecutive outstanding seasons for Spurs and topped the Premier League goal charts last season with 25 goals and came third, behind Leicester duo Riyad Mahrez and Jamie Vardy, in the PFA Player of the Year award.
