Jol told the club's official site that while there still weren't concrete offers on the table, Fulham had more than one club interested in bringing its star player away from Craven Cottage.
“There is still nothing on the table but discussions are ongoing with more than one club,” said Jol. “I expect a few things to happen soon. We are talking to several clubs but it is up to him and his desire to go to a Champions League club.
“Maybe that won’t happen but certainly I expect a few clubs to be in the mix for him. Sunderland is one of them but I think that will be difficult. There are different clubs with different scenarios and different ideas but we know exactly what we want and if other clubs come up with the right deal then we’ll do it.”
Dempsey has been linked with a move to Liverpool for most of the summer, but Jol's words lend weight to the idea that there may be a few clubs in England eyeing up a late move for the midfielder.
