Premier League giants Chelsea FC are enjoying a reasonable amount of success under Frank Lampard considering the fact that they were not allowed to spend anything at all in the transfer window. However, with their transfer ban going to be lifted in January, Chelsea are targeting Wigan Athletic star Joe Gelhardt.

According to a report carried by Express, Chelsea FC will be bidding for Joe Gelhardt once their transfer ban is lifted in January. The U-17 player is considered to be one of the best prospective talents in the country and even netted twelve goals in fifteen matches for his youth international side in the previous season. He has since been playing for the U-18 squad.

Gelhardt has also made three appearances for Wigan so far and two of those came this season. He also scored his first senior goal for the Latics which came when his side drew a game 2-2 against Hull City.

Everton too are interested in the youngster but it is Chelsea who are leading the race to rope in Gelhardt.
