Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is struggling to strike terms with Fulham for attacker Clint Dempsey.

The People says Rodgers wants to make Dempsey his next buy - but is in a fee wrangle with Fulham for the American.

The Cottagers are seeking at least £10 million for Dempsey, which far exceeds Rodgers' valuation.

The problem for Fulham is that Liverpool are so far the only serious suitor, with Arsenal and PSG yet to formally show their hand.
