The U.S. attacker is in the midst of the greatest season ever by an American outfield player, with 12 goals in the Premier League and 18 over all.

Fulham just offered Dempsey a new contract, hoping to keep the Texan at the West London club, and beat any bigger sides—who are bound to come calling—to the punch.
The Cottagers would love to see Dempsey partner with newly signed striker Pavel Pogrebnyak for a few more years. The 28-year-old Russian is on a scoring streak of his own, with five goals in three games for Fulham.
Dempsey has 17 months left on his current deal.
