Dele Alli is set to sign a new long-term contract with Tottenham, according to the London Evening Standard.

The news comes after Harry Kane agreed terms on a new six-year-deal last week, making him far and away the club’s highest-paid player.

Kane is now believed to earn around £200,000 a week. According to the Standard, Alli – whose weekly salary currently amounts to £60,000 – will now make closer to £100,000 a week.

Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino also recently committed his future to the club, signing a five-year contract after leading the club to third successive top-three finish in the Premier League.

Both Kane and Alli are set to play key roles for England at the World Cup finals this month.

Kane will captain the Three Lions in Russia, while Alli is now expected to be in the starting line-up for the first game against Tunisia.

Former Brazil international Roberto Carlos has said Alli has the “swagger” of a Brazilian ahead of the tournament.

“England are one of the favourites after Brazil. But I really like Dele Alli – he’s a lot like a Brazilian player,” he said, according to Sky Sports.

“I saw him at the Real Madrid against Spurs and he was really impressive. He’s tall and has real ability – a very good player. He has the swagger that Brazilians have.”

Roberto Carlos’ former club, Real Madrid, have been linked with a move for Alli in the past.

But it seems the 22-year-old will be staying with Tottenham for at least another season if he signs a new deal.
