A number of clubs are interested in signing Fulham star Clint Dempsey, who could leave Craven Cottage this summer, according to his agent.

The USA international had an excellent 2009-10 campaign with the Premier League outfit, playing a key role as the Cottagers reached the Europa League final, where they lost to Atletico Madrid.

He also featured as the US reached the last-16 of the ongoing World Cup finals in South Africa, where they lost to Ghana after extra-time.

Dempsey's agent, Lyle Yorks, has now hinted that the 27-year-old could be tempted to try his luck at a bigger club if such a side can agree a deal with Fulham.

Yorks told the Major League Soccer website: "There is a lot of interest from big clubs in Europe in Clint. And now you've got Roy Hodgson leaving for Liverpool... so there's a lot of different things going on."

"We've got a major club in Italy, a major club in France and a club in the Bundesliga. We'll be sorting through them in the coming weeks and also seeing what happens at Fulham.

"There's direct contact and discussions, but first they'd have to agree a deal with Fulham."
