Fulham manager Martin Jol insists Liverpool haven't made an approach for Clint Dempsey, according to the Fulham Chronicle.

The 29-year-old USA international forward has been heavily linked with a move away from Craven Cottage this summer, as the in-demand star enters the final 12 months of his contract.

Speculation about Dempsey's long-term future has been rife in recent weeks, and after Liverpool co-owner Tom Werner spoke of his admiration for the Cottagers ace earlier this week, further reports surfaced linking him with a summer switch to Anfield.

However, Jol is adamant that there has been no contact with Reds boss Kenny Dalglish, who is expected to be busy in the transfer market again this summer.

"We talked to him and hopefully he will sign the contract to keep him here for the next three years," explained the Fulham boss.

"If not, then he's still our player because there's not one club who has made an approach for him.

"Of course, it's nice that people are positive about him. I'm very positive about a lot of Liverpool players but that doesn't mean I can afford to buy them."

Liverpool are in Wembley action again this weekend when they take on Chelsea in tomorrow's FA Cup final, while Fulham host Sunderland in the Premier League the following day.
