Potential Transfer Targets

Here's hoping Eastlands is well stocked with chastity belts given Sven's arrival...now for an overview of the latest potential transfer targets:

YAKUBU: would seemingly be an ideal fit due to his talent, size, and our desperate need for quality strikers...his commitment level is a concern...very inconsistent.

ALAN SMITH: his ability to play multiple forward positions would be great for City...could we stand to do business with the evil empire though?

SHAUN WRIGHT-PHILIPPS: its a shame he ever left in the first place...was never effectively replaced at City.

FREDDIE LJUNDBERG: is past his prime and should stick to underwear modeling at this point...when was the last time Freddie did anything for Arsenal?

CHRISTIAN WILHELMSSON: am concerned about Sven showing a Swedish bias here (such as what we see with Benitez at Liverpool)...seems quality on paper though...27 year old winger for Nantes recently on loan to Roma.

ROQUE SANTA CRUZ: talented 25 year old Bayern Munich striker...not impressed with form at World Cup last year for Paraguay however.

ZOLTAN GERA: attacking Hungarian midfielder who has been with West Brom since 2004...can play the striker role, but is better suited as a right midfielder. Has struggled with fitness issues, and underwent a hernia operation in late 2005.

PAUL KONCHESKY: not sure why we would be looking for backline help at this time given the dire midfield/strike force situation.
