Liverpool owner John Henry has expressed a willingness to cash in on midfield duo Jay Spearing and Charlie Adam.
This is so that he can conjure enough financial might to make a realistic bid for Fulham favourite Clint Dempsey.
Dempsey made headlines last season by scoring 23 goals in 45 matches.
Jay Spearing has yet to make his mark for Liverpool yet playing only 16 games making only 1 assist in the process.
Charlie Adam, the more high profile player to be on his way out played far more than Spearing last season but only 2 goals last season might explain why he is out of favour at Liverpool.
Dempsey has been a Liverpool target all summer and his unwillingness to play for Fulham last week emphasises his passion for a move.
