Liverpool Look to Complete Summer Transfer Dealings With £9m Bid to Sign Fulham Attacker Clint Dempsey

Anfield side look to finally complete move to sign Craven Cottage forward.

Liverpool are ready to push on with efforts to sign Fulham attacker Clint Dempsey as Brendan Rodgers looks to bring an end to his summer spending by capturing the American international. The Anfield side are readying a £9m bid for the 29 year old Texan, a player the Merseyside club has tracked for the best part of two months.

Rodgers is drawing close to bringing in Real Madrid playmaker Nuri Sahin on a loan deal but is still looking to beef up his attacking options.

Fulham boss Martin Jol has stated that up until now no bid had been forthcoming for the 29 year old Texan but Liverpool are now ready to make a move for the United States international as Brendan Rodgers looks to bring in further attacking options this summer.

Dempsey netted 23 goals in all competitions last term but has steadfastly refused to sign a new contract and has just a year to run on his current deal which has left Fulham having to decide on whether to cash in on the former New England Revolution man during the transfer window to avoid the possibility of losing him for nothing in a year’s time.

Rodgers has already brought in Fabio Borini to boost his attack but has made it patently clear that England international Andy Carroll is not likely to be part of his first team plans and as such is looking to land the experienced Fulham forward and will hope that an opening offer of £7.5m will lure the Cottagers into agreeing to sell Dempsey.

Clint Dempsey has made 224 appearances for Fulham since he moved to the club in a £1.5m deal in January 2007 and has netted 60 goals for Fulham in the process.
