Tottenham hope to tie Hugo Lloris and Jan Vertonghen down to long term contracts, but know that qualifying for next season’s Champions League is crucial to keeping both players, according to the Daily Mail.
Lloris and Vertonghen have both established themselves as crucial first team players at White Hart Lane since their arrivals in the summer of 2012.
Both have two years left to run on their current contracts, and Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy will look to tie them down to the club in the summer.
But the north London club fear extensions to both players contracts will be hard to negotiate, should they fail to qualify for the Champions League this season.
The club are willing to offer Vertonghen a significant increase on his current £40k a week wages, while Lloris already earns in the region of £70k a week, and would not be offered an improved package under the clubs strict wage structure.
Meanwhile, the club have agreed a lucrative five-year-sponsorship deal with insurance service providers AIA, which is due to start at the beginning of next season.
The company’s logo will appear on all Tottenham shirts in all competitions through to 2019, as part of a deal thought to be worth £16million a year.
