Martin Jol has said in the last few moments that Clint Dempsey has put in a transfer request. Recently, Liverpool made their interest for the player known, but Fulham rebuffed their advances and asserted that further offers for the player would not be welcomed.
But Dempsey has clearly had his head turned and is looking for a new challenge. At 29, he probably only has one big contract left in him and he obviously feels that now is the time to move on. We at soccersweep can’t see him going anywhere but Liverpool and think that a deal is now inevitable.
Liverpool fans’ comments have been very mixed about this transfer. We think that Dempsey is an absolute gem. What do you think?
