Wigan teen Joe Gelhardt wanted by Man Utd, Liverpool and Everton

Wigan Athletic teen Joe Gelhardt is attracting interest from the country's biggest clubs.

Gelhardt, 16, is regarded as one of the most exciting youngsters in the country in his age bracket and an England U16 international.

ESPN says Manchester United, Liverpool and Everton are all chasing the teen.

United and the Merseyside clubs have been keeping tabs on Gelhardt for some time after being alerted to his potential, and sources said they are ready to try and test Wigan's resolve to hold onto the exciting prospect.

However, Wigan are determined to keep hold of Gelhardt as they have high hopes for him, but they are bracing themselves for interest in the player this summer.
