Hammers boss Sam Allardyce is desperate to strengthen his attack having Upton Park side manage just nine goals in 11 Premier League fixtures, a total that is even more worrying for the East London club given that three of those goals were scored in the club’s 3-0 win away at Tottenham.
Dempsey moved to the Seattle Sounders in August after a seven season spell in the Premier League but the experienced forward could well be interested in a short term return to the English top flight.
Dempsey netted 60 goals in 225 games for Fulham and his tally of 23 goals in his final season earned him a move to Tottenham where the adaptable forward struggled to make a consistent impact but a move back to the Premier League seems a distinct possibility with a move back to North London also a possibility.
