Arsenal made a late move for Fulham striker Clint Dempsey, it has emerged.

The American international forward, who moved to the Barclays Premier League in 2006, was speculatively linked with a move away from Craven Cottage in the later stages of the transfer window.

However, confirmation of an enquiry from Arsenal comes as a surprise, as it was un-reported that Arsene Wenger was chasing the player.

"Yes there was interest from clubs, including Arsenal, but nothing materialised," the striker told

The move came off the back of the Gunners' 8-2 defeat to Manchester United in the Barclays Premier League, a loss which sparked a flurry of activity at the Emirates.


Wenger brought defenders Per Mertesacker and Andre Santos to the club, whilst boosting the Arsenal midfield with Mikel Arteta and Yossi Benayoun on loan.

In the market for a sriker, the Frenchman turned to Park Chu-Young after failing to land Dempsey, and the Arsenal squad now has a revamped look for the rest of the campaign.
