TOTTENHAM are reportedly confident Son Heung-Min will sign a new £200,000-a-week contract to fend of interest from other teams.
Talks are ongoing between the South Korean and the North Londoners.
And both parties are said to be keen to extend his stay beyond 2023 when his current deal expires.
Negotiations were slowed by Son changing his representatives, according to the Telegraph.
But with the issue said to be top of Daniel Levy's priority list, an agreement is expected in time.
An announcement is not expected any time soon give the uncertainty brought about by the coronavirus pandemic.
The deal is said to be worth £200k-a-week – a 25 per cent increase on his current £150k weekly wage.
It is hoped the new deal will fend off interest from some of the world's biggest clubs who will come sniffing the closer he gets to the end of his contract.
The deal will put the Korean in line with the club's top earner Harry Kane – not including Gareth Bale's loan mega deal.
Spurs chief Levy wants to move early after watching stars Christian Eriksen and Jan Vertonghen wind down their contracts.

Belgium defender Vertonghen left for nothing to join Benfica, while Eriksen moved to Inter Milan last January for a fraction of his market value.
Son is Tottenham's leading scorer this season with 15.
And alongside Harry Kane has created one of the most successful striker partnerships in Premier League history with their goals and assists for one another.
