LIVERPOOL want to sign attacking midfielder Clint Dempsey for £6million.
The Fulham star has just one year remaining on his Craven Cottage deal and extension talks have stalled.
A move to Anfield is now on the cards as they prepare a formal bid this week – but Fulham will try to hold out for more cash.
Dempsey, 29, has consistently delivered high-level performances since arriving from New England Revolution in 2007 for £1.5m.
The interest is so high that we are hearing Clint Dempsey could be Brendan Rodgers’s first signing after Liverpool boss. The Fulham star has one year left in his contract and Liverpool hope to lure the American for £ 6 million.
Clint Dempsey is a proven goalscorer in the Premier League and would be welcome addition to Liverpool squad who just couldn’t seem to score last season.
