This may well be out of date by the time I hit enter. (updated)

Okay, so this is now everything I have up-to-this-minute on the Clint Dempsey scene. In addition to Sevilla, I had also been holding back on revealing Fiorentina for a good while now.

As you can tell, this thing moves fast and in ways one can't anticipate, so hang the hell on because this ride is gonna stay wild until tomorrow night's deadline cuts the power.

By the way, if it's not obvious, I cannot yet personally confirm the Arsenal report one way of the other. Yet.

UPDATE: There seems to be a large confusion over whether Dempsey would be able to even appear in the Champions League having already played in the Europa League for Fulham. Allow me to clear it up:

Yes - provided the new team has not already had a player registered for one tourney having played in the other. For instance, Real Madrid used Lassana Diarra in the CL after he played in the EL for Pompey, but drew the line at also allowing EL participant Klaas-Jan Huntelaar to register for the CL.

So, at this point in time, almost certainly yes.

is the arsenal in for dempsey rumor just completely pie in the sky dreaming?

At this time, I do not know the truth about that. However, I must admit to being very skeptical thus far.

Apparently Fulham have signed Bryan Ruiz. Does that make it more likely Dempsey's gone?
