Champions League hopefuls Tottenham Hotspur are set to offer Dele Alli a new contract following the youngster’s magnificent start to the campaign, according to the Evening Standard.
The 19-year-old is currently earning £10,000-per-week and it's expected he will at least double his wages as Spurs try to tie down one of the Premier League's hottest talents.
Manager Mauricio Pochettino will be confident a new deal can be thrashed out given the club's recent history of rewarding their star players. Harry Kane is the most recent example of this, the striker's wages currently standing at £50,000-per-week after signing two contract extensions.

When asked earlier this season how Tottenham reward their players, Pochettino replied: "If you are successful the club gives you what you deserve.
"This club always pay their players a good salary. It is step by step. We need to stay calm but if you deserve a new contract, the club will give it to you."
Alli has been excellent for the Lilywhites this season, recording three assists and five goals in 18 Premier League appearances and establishing himself an indispensable player at White Hart Lane.
Recent strikes against West Brom and Everton have served to demonstrate the England international's technical ability and earned him rave reviews from football's biggest pundits.
Fierce in a tackle and full of energy, Alli has proved an effective shield in front of Tottenham's back four this season; the teenager is fast becoming a complete midfielder.
It is widely expected the former Milton Keynes star will be part of Roy Hodgson’s 23-man England squad for the summer's European Championships in France, with some suggesting he merits a place in the Three Lions' starting XI.
Alli signed for Spurs last February in a deal worth £5 million, which is fast looking like a bargain.
