Skysports.com understands Sevilla have made an enquiry about Fulham midfielder Clint Dempsey.
Craven Cottage boss Martin Jol is facing a fight to keep hold of the American, with Paris St Germain and Aston Villa also rumoured to be interested ahead of Wednesday's transfer deadline.
Dempsey, 28, who scored a consolation in Fulham's defeat at Newcastle on Sunday, is thought to be keen to compete at a higher level.
The challenge of playing in La Liga with Sevilla could prove tempting, although the Spanish club have already been knocked out of Europe this season.
Fulham are speculated to value Dempsey at £8million and Jol is unlikely to part with his creative midfielder for anything less than that fee.
