Son Heung-min of Tottenham Hotspur is expected to get a pay raise, reflecting his soaring value.
Son has two years left on his contract until it expires as Spurs renewed it until 2023, and it was worth around 110,000 pounds per week in July last year.
But rumors are swirling about a pay raise. The Daily Mail said Son "is in line for a second pay rise inside 12 months as reward for his sensational season for Tottenham."
Son "only signed a five-year contract in July, but the Spurs hierarchy are ready to offer the forward another new deal before the start of next season," it added.
The daily speculated that the new deal would be worth up to 150,000 pounds a week, making him the team's second-highest-paid player after striker Harry Kane, who makes 200,000 pounds a week.
Impressed by Son's 16 goals in 23 games so far this season, Spurs seem eager to lock in a long-term commitment from Son.
