The rumors around Fulham's Clint Dempsey are starting to grow. The latest speculation comes from a giant in the Serie A. According to the Metro, AC Milan might have interest in the USA international midfielder. The article mentions that USA teammate Oguchi Onyewu has put in a recommendation to his club AC Milan regarding Clint Dempsey.
AC Milan might not be the only club that has interest in Fulham's Clint Dempsey. The Metro story has quotes from Dempsey's agent Lyle Yorks. The quotes below from Lyle Yorks originally came from the Major League Soccer website.
'There is a lot of interest from big clubs in Europe in Clint,' Yorks told the Major League Soccer website.
'And now you’ve got Roy Hodgson leaving for Liverpool... so there’s a lot of different things going on.
'There’s direct contact and discussions, but first they’d have to agree a deal with Fulham.'
The speculation around Clint Dempsey is something I will be monitoring . AC Milan's potential interest in Clint Dempsey could be trouble. Other clubs are probably going to try to take advantage of the current situation at Fulham. I will have an update on the Dempsey story when more information becomes available.
