Fulham makes offer for Gooch

The cast of Americans at Craven Cottage might just double is all goes well for Fulham. The West London club has offered Standard Liege $1.96 million for US defender Oguchi Onyewu.

This deal seems very close to being final, as Sky Sports has reported that Onyewu has arrived in London for a medical and he did not travel with the rest of his team for a training camp in Portugal.

Fulham has been linked to the defender for some time.

If the deal for Onyewu and Dempsey goes through, that will bring the number of Americans on the club to four (just a couple more and they could play in the MLS).

Onyewu is ready to move up to one of the big leagues in Europe and the EPL will provide him with play against some of the best. It will also be nice to see him in the backfield with Carlos Bocanegra. The more playing time these two have together, the better it is for the national team.

That all said, Onyewu going to Fulham is not a done deal as he is also meeting with AC Milan about possibly moving to Italy.
