Tottenham fullback Hutton: Bale could walk into any team in world

Tottenham fullback Alan Hutton says teammate Gareth Bale could walk into any team in the world.

Tottenham fullback Alan Hutton says teammate Gareth Bale could walk into any team in the world.

Hutton feels Spurs could face a tough battle keeping hold of the star winger in the January transfer window.

"Of course there are a lot of teams who would want Gareth," said Hutton. "He could play for any team in the world so Tottenham will be desperate to hold on to him, he's a great talent on the big stage.

"Maicon is supposed to be one of the best full-backs in the world but Gareth caused him all sorts of problems (on Wednesday) so I am sure he can do that anywhere in the world.

"Gareth's finishing is deadly. You might expect it from natural goalscorers like Jermain Defoe but Gareth also has that in his locker.

"He has that magic touch for goals and he proved it again against the Champions League title holders Inter Milan.

"To get three goals anywhere is good for your pride but to get three goals in Italy against the champions is pretty sensational.

"You come to expect it of him. I hope he scores a hat-trick every time he plays now!"
