AC Milan keen on signing Fulham midfielder Clint Dempsey - report

Fulham midfielder Clint Dempsey is said to be on the radar of Italian giants AC Milan, according to reports.

Yahoo! Sports
reports that the USA ace who shone at the World Cup finals in South Africa could head to Milan in the summer.

Dempsey had a marvellous season with Fulham in 2009-10 in which he helped his side reach the final of the Europa League, which they lost to Spanish outfit Atletico Madrid.

A Milan source reportedly close to the club board has been quoted by Yahoo! Sports as saying: "[Dempsey] brings a lot of action and energy but he can be creative too. There are some options on the table but Dempsey is a realistic one. A bid is very possible, and soon."

However, a source said to be close to Fulham admitted that no formal bid has come in from the Rossoneri but added that the club are aware that Dempsey would seemingly find it difficult to resist a move to the Serie A giants.

"[Fulham] are aware that if a club like [Milan] comes in it is hard for a player to say no," the source said.
