Normally played on the right wing for his club Real Madrid, Bale's quality could lead to Coleman using him as the main frontman against an Andorra side that Wales are expected to beat.
"I've seen Gareth play everywhere. He can play anywhere really," BBC Sport quotes Coleman as saying.
"[Bale] will figure in this campaign in a number of positions."
It has been reported recently that Bale, who began his career as a left-back with Southampton, could feature in central midfield for Madrid this season after the departure of Angel Di Maria to Manchester United.
