The Croatia international was the subject of at least three bids from Chelsea in the summer, with a £40 million offer being turned down by the White Hart Lane outfit on deadline day.
Since then the diminutive playmaker has got on with business, and has played a key part in Spurs winning their last three games.
With the Eastern European reportedly earning £40,000 per week, Chelsea were willing to treble his salary, and Spurs have seen that the player deserves a higher wage.
The Telegraph has reported that Tottenham want to double his wages to £80,000 per week, which will hopefully persuade the midfielder to commit to the club on a long term basis.
Despite the fact that Modric still had five years left on his current deal, manager Harry Redknapp has called for the player to receive a pay rise, and it appears that chairman Daniel Levy will offer him a new deal.
