Liverpool are being linked with a shock part-exchange move as part of the deal to bring Clint Dempsey to the club.

The American international has been linked with a move to Anfield in recent months, and Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish is reportedly considering off-loading full-back Paul Konchesky as part of the deal.

Konchesky joined the Reds in the summer from Fulham, with former Liverpool chief Roy Hodgson bringing the player to Merseyside in a deal worth around £4 million.

The player has struggled to find form at Anfield, and the sacking of Hodgson has led to speculation that the player could leave the club as soon as this month.


Dempsey has been monitored by a number of clubs recently, with Wolfsburg thought to be the biggest rivals to Liverpool in the race to sign the 27-year-old.

Mark Hughes is reportedly keen on bringing Konchesky back to Craven Cottage, and The Metro reports that the Reds will look to offload the player to his former employer in a player-plus-cash deal.

Liverpool are in the market for a striker, with an attacking foil for Fernando Torres thought to be Dalglish's main priority during the current transfer window.

The former New England Revolution hitman has the Barclays Premier League experience that the Liverpool manager is looking for, and his fine form in recent seasons make him an attractive proposition to the Anfield outfit.
