I'm not going to spill all with this issue, but find it fair to make clear that a Clint Dempsey move to Liverpool is not imminent. The heat is rising in the small crowd around him, but everybody needs to hit the chill button when UK tabloids breathlessly insist something fantastic is set to go off.
Informed by a couple people that would know, I can tell you that Liverpool is indeed interested in Deuce this summer (unlike last year, when the rags also tried so hard to shove Deuce to Anfield). Of course, I can also tell you they aren't alone.
So, yes, something could end up happening in this situation - such is life. But it won't be tomorrow, no matter how many outlets that spell "defense" weird say so.
