Tottenham may be willing to increase the wages of a number of key players if they qualify for the Champions League this season, according to the London Evening Standard.

Spurs players were said to be stunned upon discovering Daniel Levy was paid just over £6 million last season, more than the club’s highest earning player, Harry Kane.

But the Evening Standard believes the club are prepared to relax their current wage structure and pay players closer to what they believe they are worth.

Christian Eriksen and Heung-Min Son are among those who could sign new, big-money contracts in the coming months.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino has also been tipped to commit his future to the club as it looks more and more certain Tottenham will qualify for the Champions League for a third successive season.

The extra revenue brought in by finishing in the top four is apparently the key reason Levy is willing to increase player wages. Spurs currently pay considerably lower salaries than some of their Premier League rivals.

It will be interesting to see whether this has an effect on the future of Toby Alderweireld, who is currently in the midst of a contract dispute – will Tottenham be willing to make the Belgian one of the Premier League’s best paid defenders?
