Cape Town - Paul Ince has urged Liverpool to make a move for Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale, as he feels the Welshman would be a "perfect fit" for the Anfield outfit.

The 30-year-old is being pushed out at Real and there is talk of a lucrative move to China being in the pipeline, while Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich are also keen.

However, Paul Ince is urging his former club Liverpool to make a move for Bale and believes it could be a marriage made in heaven if it was to happen.

"Bale can play right, left or central. If I was looking at a team if they could afford him, it would be Liverpool," he told BBC Radio 5 Live.

"He needs to re-invent himself as a player and play football week in, week out.

"He would have to take a massive wage drop. It can't be about money for Bale. He has to go to a team who can win things. Liverpool are European champions and they want to make a massive challenge in the league again.

"Who else could afford him? Man City maybe, Man United and I don't think Tottenham would be the right club. I would like to see him at Liverpool. He still has four or five years left. I think he'd be a perfect fit."
