Trio snubbed megabucks deals elsewhere to agree terms with Tottenham - Sky Sports
By Harry Sykes
Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Hugo Lloris could undoubtedly earn mega-bucks if they quit Tottenham for another club, according to a report.
Sky Sports claim on their website that the key Spurs trio are not maximising their considerable earning potential at White Hart Lane despite signing new contracts this season.
Striker Kane, playmaker Alli and goalkeeper Lloris have been three of the key players in a thrilling Tottenham campaign that has underlined the huge progress made under Mauricio Pochettino.
Spurs demolished Bournemouth on Saturday to secure a seventh consecutive Premier League win and pile the pressure on leaders Chelsea, who lost at Manchester United 24 hours later.
With six matches of the campaign remaining, second-placed Tottenham are now just four points adrift of Chelsea and could inflict some psychological damage if they overcome their title rivals in Saturday’s mouthwatering FA Cup semi-final showdown at Wembley.

“Even more encouraging for Tottenham is that the players clearly appreciate that they are part of something special,” Sky Sports report.
“The likes of Kane, Alli and Hugo Lloris could undoubtedly earn more elsewhere. Instead, they have signed new long-term contracts this season along with seven other first-team players.”
It has been reported that Kane, who scored his 20th league goal of the season against Bournemouth, and Lloris signed contracts worth upwards of £100,000-a-week earlier in the campaign.
Alli also penned a lucrative new deal as he was rewarded for the vast progress he has made since joining from MK Dons in 2015.
Yet the world’s elite clubs could afford to pay more to the illustrious Spurs trio, whose wages are dwarfed by the big earners in the Premier League at the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City.
In other Tottenham transfer news, the club have sensationally terminated the contract of one of their defenders.
