Tottenham Hotspur are willing to give Republic of Ireland striker Troy Parrott a massive pay-rise in an attempt to keep him in north London for the foreseeable future, according to a fresh report.
Parrott has come to the attention of some of Europe's top clubs this year, and the youngster has also earned a place in the Ireland senior side, making his international debut against New Zealand earlier this week.
The 17-year-old has made great progress over the opening months of the new season, and Spurs are keen to hand their starlet a new contract befitting his rapid rise, Football Insider report.
Discussions over a new contract have already begun, despite the fact Parrott signed his first professional contract with Mauricio Pochettino's side when he turned 17 in February. However, the club are prepared to replace that deal with a much more lucrative wage for the Ireland international, in the hope he ignores interest from other clubs.
The young striker has only made one senior appearance for Tottenham, but his performances in the UEFA Youth League have demonstrated his potential, scoring five goals in three games for the Lilywhites.
Parrott is an exciting prospect for Pochettino, and his coaches have no doubts over his future in the top flight of English football. He made his debut for the club in Spurs' humiliating penalty shootout defeat to Colchester United in September's EFL Cup clash.
Tottenham will be desperate to tie down their prolific youngster to a long-term deal, given the issues that surround a whole host of their star players' futures.
Christian Eriksen, Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen and Danny Rose are all at loggerheads in their contract negotiations, with all four players currently refusing to sign new deals with the club.
Rose's rejection is the latest sign of growing discontent within the camp, after he claimed that he is prepared to see out the remaining 18 months on his contract without seeking a transfer elsewhere.
