Fulham's Clint Dempsey has said on the record that he wants to play Champions League football. It's also common knowledge that Arsenal is interested in the United States attacker. With rumors of Arsenal discussing Dempsey's transfer to the Emirates, here are some ways the league's fourth leading scorer from last season can contribute to the Gunners.
The addition of Dempsey would infuse toughness into Arsenal's attack on the wings or in the attacking midfield position, something that neither Gervinho, Aaron Ramsey or Theo Walcott provide in high amounts. Dempsey has a reputation for playing with unmatched ferocity that sometimes results in others getting hurt. For example, he caught Chelsea's John Terry in the jaw with an errant elbow in 2007. He did something similar to Phil Jones of Manchester United in December. Not only will Dempsey be tough, he'll play defense as well.
