Spurs winger Gareth Bale says he is flattered to receive interest from Spanish giants Barcelona.

Gareth Bale has said he is flattered by recent reports linking him with Barcelona.

The La Liga side are thought to be plotting a bid of around £35m for the Spurs winger during the January transfer window, although his current club value him at £50m.

"It's always nice being linked with clubs such as Barcelona - it's great to be linked with a team like that," said Bale, 22. "I'm enjoying my football at Spurs and I don't really take much notice of what is written about interest from other clubs."

Bale added that he is hoping for a top four finish this season to guarantee Champions League action next year.

"The Champions League is obviously where I want to be playing," he said. "We've got a great chance of qualifying this season, especially with the manager playing young players in the Europa League and giving us the freshness to play in the Premier League.

"We've had a great start to the season. The main thing we want to achieve is the top four - anything above that is obviously a bonus."

Spurs next take on Aston Villa at White Hart Lane on Monday night.
