Steve McClaren is pushing Wolfsburg to make a £20 million January bid for Tottenham winger Gareth Bale, according to Sport.de.
Bale, 21, has been in fine form for Spurs this season and played a key role winning a penalty and scoring the final goal in Wednesday night's 4-1 Champions League victory against FC Twente. Despite only inking a new contract extension in the summer, Europe's biggest names are hovering around the Wales international.
The big spending Bundesliga outfit have joined the queue to secure Bale's signature. After splashing the cash in the summer on Diego, Simon Kjaer and Mario Mandzukic, McClaren has asked his board to dig deep again in the New Year.
