Tottenham are set to reward Heung-Min Son for his fine performances with a new contract, according to the London Evening Standard.

After struggling to settle during his first season in England, Son scored 21 goals in all competitions last term – he has followed that up with 13 goals in the current campaign, emerging as one of the most important players in the squad.

The South Korean currently earns around £60,000 a week, but Spurs are apprently keen to improve his salary as a reward for his on-pitch displays.

The Standard also suggests a number of other Tottenham players could enter new contract talks in the near future, including Christian Eriksen, Erik Lamela, Mousa Dembele and Jan Vertonghen.

Meanwhile, reports surfaced on Friday suggesting Victor Wanyama is set to request a new contract amid alleged interest from Liverpool and Manchester United.

Spurs are believed to offer generous bonuses to their players, but the basic salaries at the club are among the lowest of the Europe’s top sides.

That may have to change if Tottenham are to keep hold of all of their stars. For now, keeping the squad happy with incrementally improved deals is the most important thing.
