Turin side keen on White Hart Lane wide-man.
SPURS’ Gareth Bale may not be reunited with Luka Modric in January at Real Madrid, as Juve look set to hijack the move.
The Welshman who has won plaudits for his performances in recent seasons for the north London club could move to Italy instead.
Andre Villas-Boas is desperate to keep Bale, but may not be able to turn down an offer if it is the right one.
And with Bale craving regular Champions League football, he may relish the chance to join a club of Juve’s stature.
Bale told Italian sports site Tuttosport.com: “It would be nice to compare with other leagues and cultures. I always said that I’m not afraid to leave England.
“If the time is ripe and a team of my liking I will, I will assess the offer carefully.”
Up to now interest in Gareth Bale has seemingly come only from La Liga giants Barcelona and Real Madrid but now, perhaps unsurprisingly, other sides have taken note of the Welsh youngster’s recent comments. Juventus are now setting their sights on the 23 year old and Andre Villas-Boas must be concerned about his chances of keeping the former Southampton man at White Hart Lane.
The White Hart Lane wide-man has hit a rich vein of form over the past month and this has served to further strengthen links to a probable North London exit for the Tottenham attacker.
Even though Bale only signed a four year contract in the summer there is every chance that if a good offer is made then the talented wide-man may well look to force his way into a move away from Tottenham to a side that can genuinely challenge for top honours.
Bale has scored 36 goals in 176 appearances for Tottenham since moving to the club in the summer of 2007.
