Interview with Chief Fulham scout Barry Simmonds discussing Dempsey, Lopez and Gattuso

An interesting article from our chief scout Barry Simmonds given in Italian. My Italian is pretty non-existent so this is taken straight from google translate so please excuse any peculiar sayings!

MILAN League EXCLUSIVE BARRY SIMMONDS - Arrived in Italy to represent the Fulham Wyscout Forum 2012, the chief observer of Fulham Barry Simmonds was granted exclusively to the microphones of Calciomercato.it to take stock of latest negotiations regarding Maxi Lopez, courted by Londoners in January, and the jewel of the 'Cottagers' Clint Dempsey, followed by several big European.

DEMPSEY - "It 'a very important player for us - Simmonds said - but although there are many rumors about his future, I can assure you that at Fulham has not reached any official offer. It' a situation that a little 'bother us. I entries only, we do know that the player is doing very well with our jersey and that is appreciated, all that we like, but Dempsey is happy with us and, conversely, we are happy to have it in pink. I do not know if there will be developments in the summer, but when the player stands at Fulham. "

MAXI LOPEZ - "There were some contacts for the Argentinian striker this January, but nothing concrete. Catania, then, has made ​​our public interest and there have been various rumors. It 'was, however, little more a survey. New crowded in summer? (Simmonds was seen talking with the agent of Maxi Lopez, ed) No, I think. It 'true that I spoke with Andrea D'Amico, his attorney, but I talked to many people. These events are just talking face to face with as many people as possible and create valuable relationships, but there was nothing on the market. "

GATTUSO - Finally, could not miss a beat on the contractual situation of Gattuso "It 's no doubt a major talent, but our policy leads us to prefer younger players, they can grow and do well with our jersey for many years. Two important shots, for example, for that matter, were Mahamadou Diarra and Pavel Pogrebnyak, still at the peak of his career. We hope to make a shot like that in summer. "
