Report states Tottenham Hotspur's three highest earners as Hugo Lloris, Erik Lamela and surprising midfielder

Mousa Dembele

Mousa Dembele signed a bumper deal when he arrived from Fulham in 2012.

The London Evening Standard is reporting this week that Tottenham Hotspur star Dele Allin is all set to be handed a new contract at the club - which will see his current wages double to £20k-a-week at White Hart Lane.

The move would come as a reward for his current form and progression in the Spurs first-team, one year after agreeing a deal to join the club from MK Dons.

In the same report however there is an interesting line regarding the club's current high-earners.

They name the three biggest earners at Tottenham Hotspur as Hugo Lloris, Erik Lamela and, perhaps surprisingly, Mousa Dembele.

The report claims that the trio all earn somewhere between £70-80k-a-week each - making them Tottenham's highest paid three players.

Lloris makes sense. He is the French national captain and a massive asset for Spurs. Lamela similarly. For all his issues at Tottenham when they snapped up the Argentine from AS Roma in 2013 he was one of Europe's most sought after talents.

But Dembele has been in-and-out of the Spurs first-team and only joined the club from modest circumstances at Fulham in 2012.

It is perhaps a reflection of what Fulham must have been paying the Belgian international, rather than what Spurs were willing to pay the player - who signed a five-year deal at Spurs in 2012.

This season has seen Dembele revitalised at the club and he is certainly starting to play to the level he is being paid by the club.

Hopefully that will continue as Spurs hope to launch a title challenge in the coming months.
