Fulham ace Clint Dempsey is on the 'wish list' of many clubs, according to his agent.

The USA international - who scored against England at the World Cup - has been at the centre of growing speculation suggesting he could be set to swap west London for Merseyside - and Dempsey's representative has now given his take on recent reports.

"Some of it is just reports and some of it is accurate," Lyle Yorks told

"There's interest in Clint, but there are no discussions right now."

Liverpool and Wolfsburg were reportedly the frontrunners for the 27-year-old's signature but, while not ruling out a move or his client in the future, Yorks admitted neither club has been in contact just yet.

"These two are just reports at this point," Yorks added.

"But there's always interest in Clint. It's been that way for a long time. People have him on their wish list."

It had been reported that Roy Hodgson has been keeping an eye on his £10 million-rated former charge with a view to bringing him to Liverpool during the January transfer window.

The Liverpool boss has made no secret of his desire to bring in more potent attacking threats in the New Year to ease the goalscoring burden on Anfield hero Fernando Torres - with Dempsey one of several alleged targets.

West Ham striker Carlton Cole and Bolton star Johan Elmander have both also been linked with moves to Anfield as Liverpool step up their pursuit of striking reinforcements.

New Liverpool owners NESV are expected to back their manager in the transfer market come January as the look to send out a message of intent to the Anfield faithful.
