Fulham have denied reports on the Fenway Sports Group website which claimed that USA forward Clint Dempsey had agreed to sign for Liverpool.
A story, which was removed five hours after it was posted, appeared on the website of FSG which claimed the club had ‘added Clint Dempsey to a team that came within a game of winning the FA Cup’.
However a spokesperson for Fulham denied that Dempsey was set for Anfield telling the BBC: “It is totally not true. We have not received any bids. We would also discourage any bids.”
Dempsey’s future has been the subject of much speculation in recent weeks following an impressive season last year when he bagged 23 goals in 46 appearances last season.
The USA international has one year left on his contract at Craven Cottage and has been strongly linked with a move to both Arsenal and Liverpool.
