Attacking star wants £120,000-per-week Spurs deal

Erik Lamela wants a 100% pay-rise if he’s to commit to a new contract at Spurs, according to reports from the Mirror.

The Argentine currently earns £60,000-a-week. But on the back of his excellent start to the current season, he’s eager to see that doubled to £120,000-a-week.

Spurs have been very active in tying down key players to new contracts of late, with attacking midfielder Christian Eriksen penning a fresh deal at White Hart Lane last week.

It’s reported that Lamela wants to agree another three years, on top of the three he has left to run on his current deal, as well as a vastly improved salary.

The £30m South American initially struggled to settle in north London following his 2013 move from Roma but has flourished under Mauricio Pochettino over the course of the past 12 months or so.

Spurs will play their first Champions League match of the season this week at Wembley against Monaco.
