Gareth Bale says Mousa Dembele can fill Luka Modric's boots at Tottenham.

Spurs swooped for Dembele after selling Modric to Real Madrid.

Bale told the Guardian: "Everybody saw what Mousa can do at Fulham. He's a great signing, a great player, he's proved it at Fulham and can do even better at Tottenham. Dembélé playing in central midfield instead of Modric … I think he's capable of filling Luka's boots and more, to be honest."
