Clint Dempsey Arrives in United States For Talks With Everton

Tottenham Hotspur attacking midfielder Clint Dempsey has arrived in the United States for transfer discussions with Everton about a potential move to the Merseyside club, according to a report.

Everton manager Roberto Martinez and club officials are currently in Los Angeles for the International Champions Cup. Everton plays Real Madrid tomorrow at Dodger Stadium in the semi-final of the tournament.

Dempsey is currently surplus to requirements at White Hart Lane this summer after Tottenham Hotspur have signed central midfielder Paulinho, winger Nacer Chadli and striker Roberto Soldado.

If Dempsey is able to join Everton, there’s no guarantee that the talented US international will have a guaranteed starting spot on a team that features stars such as Marouane Fellaini, Nikica Jelavic, Victor Anichebe, Kevin Mirallas and others. However, it all depends on how Martinez will want to use Dempsey, as an attacking midfielder in the hole or up front as a striker.

What’s your opinion? Would you welcome a move by Clint Dempsey to play for Everton? Does Everton have a chance of qualifying for the UEFA Champions League, which was one of the reasons why Dempsey moved from Fulham to Tottenham last summer? Have your say in the comments section below.
