Freescoring midfielder attracts the attention of former taskmaster

Sky Sports understands Queens Park Rangers are amongst a number of clubs monitoring Clint Dempsey's situation at Fulham. The USA international has emerged as one of the Premier League's top performers this season, with a hat-trick against Newcastle at the weekend his second of the campaign. Dempsey is the top flight's most prolific midfielder having troubled the scoresheet 15 times already and is not short of admirers. With 18 months of his current contract to run at Craven Cottage and as yet no talks of extension having been mooted, several suitors have been alerted. At the head of the queue are QPR, with Mark Hughes well aware of Dempsey's capabilities having managed the 28-year-old during his own stint in charge of the Cottagers. Martin Jol would be loath to lose a player widely credited to be Fulham's best this season but it remains to be seen whether QPR will test his resolve between now and the close of the transfer window.
