http://arsenal.rivals.net/default.asp?sid=880&p=2&stid=8328404 Rumors are circulating that the next target for Le Boss when the transfer window opens is an ex Gooner favorite - well, the name is, at least. Leeds young starlet Alan Smith has been courted for some time by Arsenal and with the England player going at a rock bottom bargain price, Wenger would be able to obtain him within the budget constraints he has. Smith, a Leeds favorite, is likely to remain with the Elland Road outfit for as long as they can hold on to him - but with massive debts mounting at the Yorkshire Club - they may be forced to sell, and sell quickly. It is a well known fact that we need an outright striker to partner Thierry - and Le Boss sees Smith as an ideal compliment. The player has a temperament to match the AFC style of play (!) and the chance to play alongside world-class teammates may prove too tempting to Smith. Peter Reid is struggling to balance the books and his team is propping up the table. The Elland Road Club recently announced record losses last week and are desperate to claw back as much cash as possible in any transfer after seeing terrible deals involving Lee Bowyer and Harry Kewell.
