Pete Alonso seemingly has a solution to the ongoing contract extension standoff between his teammate, Francisco Lindor, and the Mets — and owner Steve Cohen won’t like it.

“Pay him $400 (million),” Alonso told reporters Tuesday. “I hope they pay him $400 million, he’s worth every penny.”

The Post confirmed Monday that the Mets offered Lindor a 10-year, $325 million extension, to which the four-time All-Star countered with a 12-year, $385 million ask.

A $400 million contract would make the 27-year-old Lindor the second-highest paid baseball player in total contract dollars behind Mike Trout ($426.5M).

Lindor has said that he would not sign an extension after Thursday’s Opening Day.

“Not only is he a superstar on the field, he pays attention, he works hard, he cares about his teammates,” Alonso said.

The Mets acquired Lindor this offseason in a blockbuster trade with Cleveland.
