Anzhi Makhachkala made news again with its intentions of planning to acquire Gareth Bale from the Tottenham Hotspur. The news was published in the magazine A Bola and Soccernews. Anzhi is in eighth place in the 2011 Russian Premier League table with 45 points.

Suleyman Kerimov (Anzhi Makhachkala owner) is hoping include Bale along with other players in a Mega or Double Mega deal during the Januray Transfer Window. The reason is so that Anzhi can be close to Zenit St. Petersburg and CSKA Moscow in the Russian Premier League.

The news about Bale comes after Roman Palyuchenko announces that he wants to leave the Tottenham Hotspur for Russia. It remains to be seen what will transpire.

The question is whether Anzhi Makhachkala is overextending itself in the English Premier League?
