Tottenham will offer key players Hugo Lloris and Jan Vertonghen new long-term deals in hope that they will commit to staying at White Hart Lane, according to the Daily Mail.

Both Lloris and Vertonghen have stated in the past that they are desperate to play regular Champions League football.

Tottenham will need to finish above fourth-placed Liverpool if they are to qualify for next season's Champions League.

The north London outfit are currently three points behind Liverpool in fifth, so still have a chance of sealing their place in next season's elite competition with 12 Premier League games to go by.

Tottenham's top brass are worried they could lose both Lloris and Vertonghen in the summer so will offer both players new long-term deal in order to secure their respective futures at White Hart Lane.

Belgium international Vertonghen, who is currently earning £40,000 per week, is due a significant wage rise after becoming a vital ingredient in Tottenham's recent success.

Lloris, on the other hand, takes home a reported £70,000 per week so is not expected to receive a hefty wage boost.

Tottenham could face the possibility of losing both players if they do not act soon as Lloris has been linked with Atletico Madrid in recent weeks and Vertonghen is reportedly attracting interest from Barcelona.
