Tottenham duo Christian Eriksen and Heung-Min Son are the latest players to be lined up for new deals, according to the Daily Mirror.

The newspaper claims that Spurs plan to reward the first-team duo with new deals in their next wave of contract renewals.

Chairman Daniel Levy has been overseeing an overhaul of the club’s wage structure in recent times, with Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Topy Alderweireld also primed for negotiations over contract.

It is understood that Kane and Alli are priorities, while wages are causing an issue with defender Alderweireld.

The report also details that new terms will be spoken about with Eriksen, who is currently on a £70,000-a-week deal.

Meanwhile, Son is set for new terms on his £60,000-a-week deal to extend his future with the north London club.

OPINION

Spurs clearly have Kane, Alli and Alderweireld in the top bracket of players at the club whose long-term futures need to be settled. However, the next range of players is certainly the underrated pair of Eriksen and Son that are so vital to Mauricio Pochettino’s side. Attacking midfielder Eriksen has become so influential for Spurs in recent years and the pass master is earning rave reviews across the Premier League. The 25-year-old is entering the peak of his career and already has six goals plus eight assists this season. Meanwhile, versatile attacker Son often goes under the radar for all his incredible work-rate and talent. The 25-year-old has already chipped in with 10 goals this term and is very clinical in front of goal.
