Tottenham to agree deal for £100,000-a-week star following continued talks

Tottenham are close to agreeing a new deal with key attacker Dele Alli this summer, based on a report by the Evening Standard on Monday.

The club’s chairman Daniel Levy has received praises in recent weeks for deciding to hand new contracts to a host of talented players in the squad before convincing Mauricio Pochettino to turn down a move to Real Madrid and sign a new deal.

Dele Alli has developed into one of Spurs’ biggest assets after a couple of superb seasons in the white shirt.

Based on the Evening Standard’s report, the 22-year-old is set to sign a new contract with Tottenham that will increase his weekly wages from £60,000 to £100,000-a-week.

Alli will become the second high-profile player in the Tottenham squad to sign a new contract after star striker Harry Kane agreed a six-year extension on Friday.

The club is also hoping to tie down the likes of Christian Eriksen, Jan Vertonghen, Eric Dier, Son Heung-min and Kieran Trippier to new deals as well, this summer.
