Inter Milan boss Rafa Benitez is eyeing Tottenham winger Gareth Bale.

Italian sources say Benitez plans to use cash raised from Inter's sale of Maicon to Real Madrid to move for Bale.

Inter president Massimo Moratti admitted last night they were in the market for a new left-back.

The Mirror says Tottenham do not want to sell Bale, a revelation at the end of last season during Spurs' Champions League surge.
