Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti has asked the club to sign Gareth Bale



Carlo Ancelotti could replace Gareth Bale during the summer transfer window.

The Everton boss has reportedly asked club chiefs to secure the services of the Welsh winger.

Bale, who joined Tottenham on loan from Real Madrid this summer, has suffered a mixed campaign.

The beach bar Journalist Eduardo Inda has claimed Ancelotti wants to sign Bale for a free transfer this summer, with Madrid likely to let him go.

He claimed the former Madrid boss loved the player when they were together at the Spanish club.

Ancelotti signed Bale from Tottenham in the 2013 summer transfer window. They won the Champions League together, and a reunion in Merseyside could now be in the offing.

The 90-time Welsh international has scored 14 goals in all competitions this season.

He is expected to return to Spain at the end of the campaign, but doubts remain about his long-term future in Madrid.

In recent seasons, Everton have signed players from two of Spain’s biggest clubs – Barcelona and Real Madrid.

Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes arrived from Barcelona in the 2018 summer window, while James Rodriguez arrived from Real Madrid a year ago.

Bale would undoubtedly be another welcome addition from the big La Liga guns if they could persuade him to move to Goodison Park.

He looked in excellent shape against Sheffield United this weekend and might be tempted by the prospect of staying in England.
