Cottage ace set for Reds move
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers will reportedly make a £7.5million offer to sign Fulham star Clint Dempsey this week.
The new Anfield chief revealed on Monday that he hopes to have two new faces on board before the Reds fly to America for their pre-season tour.
And, in addition to Roma forward Fabio Borini, it seems certain that Rodgers will make a big effort to entice 29-year-old United States international attacking midfielder, Dempsey, to the Merseyside outfit.
Cottagers boss Martin Jol had been hopeful of keeping Dempsey at Craven Cottage after he enjoyed a productive season with the Londoners, bagging an impressive 17 Premier League goals.
However, with the player's contract running down, an offer in the region of £7.5million would be far too good to rebuff and it will also enable the Dutch tactician to bring in reinforcements to his squad.
As we revealed on Monday Jol is already lining up several potential replacements for Dempsey, including Bristol City's Albert Adomah, Swansea's Scott Sinclair and Luciano Narsingh of Dutch club Heerenveen.
