Arsenal boss Wenger ‘ready to make move for Dempsey’

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is ready to move for Clint Dempsey and wants to play him behind Robin van Persie and Lukas Podolski, according to The Sun.

Dempsey, who has scored 23 goals for Fulham this season, has frequently been linked with the Gunners as well as the likes of Tottenham and Liverpool.

His contract expires next year and Fulham manager Martin Jol is hopeful the American will sign a new long-term deal at Craven Cottage.

It is claimed that if Arsenal fail to land Dempsey they will go for Blackburn’s Junior Hoilett, who is one of several players being targeted by QPR.
