Inter Milan advisor Luis Suarez has admitted club president Massimo Moratti would love to sign Tottenham star Gareth Bale - a player he likens to Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, according to talkSPORT.

The 23-year-old Spurs star has emerged as a Premier League superstar this season, and his performances have led to speculation he could leave White Hart Lane if Andre Villas-Boas's side fail to clinch Champions League qualification.

And Suarez, the former Inter Milan and Barcelona midfielder who now advises Moratti in Milan, says the Italian club would love to sign a player like Bale.

Speaking to Spanish newspaper Marca, Suarez said: "I have no doubt that after Messi and Cristiano, he is the most interesting player out there right now.

"He always heads straight to the opposition's goal. I've seen him take free-kicks, and he's like Cristiano. I know my president well and if he could, he'd sign him for Inter. 

"But he's very expensive, isn't he? £50m-£60m - that's plain crazy. Aren't we all going a bit crazy? How can Luka Modric cost £32m? Of course, I'd pay £50m for Bale before paying £40m-£45m for Neymar."

Spurs currently sit fifth in the Premier League, two points behind Arsenal in fourth but with a game in hand over their north London rivals.

Bale is the club's top scorer with 22 goals in all competitions, and he has been linked with several of Europe's top clubs.

Inter have been interested in the winger ever since he terrorised then-Inter full-back Maicon in the Champions League three seasons ago.
