Chelsea, Man Utd join race for Wigan Athletic youngster Joe Gelhardt

Chelsea have joined Premier League interest in Wigan Athletic youngster Joe Gelhardt.

The Daily Star says Manchester United and Liverpool have now been joined by Chelsea in the hunt to sign the youngster.

Wigan are struggling this season and currently sit 20th in the Championship and only two points off the relegation zone.

However, as the club finances are reportedly relatively healthy they are under no pressure to sell Gelhardt, who has scored once this season.

The report claims the Latics are unlikely to sell the England under-18 captain in the January window, but that would suit Chelsea as they are currently still serving a transfer ban.
