Arsenal ‘Determined’ to Land £10m Dempsey Despite Liverpool Interest
Arsenal will try to beat off competition from Liverpool and Newcastle United to sign Fulham forward Clint Demspey this summer, according to the Daily Mail.
Arsenal will try to beat off competition from Liverpool and Newcastle to sign Fulham forward Clint Demspey this summer, according to the Daily Mail.
The report claims the Gunners have regularly sent scouts to watch the USA striker in recent months, and they have convinced Arsene Wenger that he would be a great addition at the Emirates.
Dempsey has bagged 22 goals already this season for Fulham and his contract situation means he could be available at a knock down price this summer. The 29-year-old’s current contract expires in 2013 and he’s stalling on discussing a new deal, and the Mail suggest that Arsenal are ‘determined’ to fight off competition from Liverpool and Newcastle to sign the £10m-rated forward in the summer.
There is no doubt Dempsey has been a stand-out performer at Craven Cottage this season and he should certainly be pushing for place in the Premier League team of the year, so it’s no surprise to hear he’s attracting interest from some of the big-hitters. £10m would represent something of a bargain for a player who’s proven in the Premier League and if he refuses to sign a new contract it’s going to be very different for Fulham to hang on to him.
