Wolverhampton Wanderers join the race to sign Joe Gelhardt

Joe Gelhardt is a striker in demand as Wolverhampton Wanderers have joined the race for the 17-year-old, according to the Birmingham Mail (h/t Liverpool Echo).

The Wigan star has played in the Championship this season and is one of the brightest talents coming through the division.

The English youngster can play on either wing but his best position is as a centre-forward. The Reds are also interested in the 17-year-old (h/t Daily Mail) and the Liverpool Echo adds that Gelhardt has a couple of years left on his contract.

The report claims that Wigan could try to cash in on the talented youngster as the forward made his Championship debut last season.

More young forwards at Liverpool?

The Reds have lost Bobby Duncan in the summer but have several talented attackers in the youth teams. Paul Glatzel has impressed for the U18s last season while Rhian Brewster is expected to feature in the first-team this season.

Harvey Elliott, a summer signing from Fulham, could also feature for us later in the season, and the youngster was also included in our Champions League group squad.

The Reds didn’t make any big signings in the summer as they targeted a couple of young players for outfield positions, and signing Gelhardt would fit well into the scheme of things.

Transfer news: Curtis Jones will not leave Liverpool this month

Liverpool journalist Paul Gorst states that the young midfielder is unhappy with the lack of game time afforded to him. It has, however, been termed as just youthful exuberance rather than any sign of him being unhappy.

An academy product, Jones made his Liverpool debut in the FA Cup against Wolverhampton Wanderers in 2019. The 18-year-old has played thrice for Liverpool this season and has impressed when called upon. Jones won the man of the match award in the Carabao Cup win against Milton Keynes Dons.

Curtis Jones

The midfielder has had moments that would be a part of a highlight reel, and among them is his calmly taken penalty in the front of the Kop to dump out Arsenal in the League Cup. But the moment that will live on in the player’s memory and also in Anfield folklore will be his strike to dump Everton out of the FA Cup.

It is always a special moment for a player to score his first senior goal, but for a local lad to go on and break his duck by scoring the winner in the Merseyside derby must be special.

Jones has represented the English national youth teams at various levels and has won 23 caps. He was a part of the Reds squad that won the World Club Cup in 2019.

The defender currently plays for Vitesse Arnhem in the Dutch Eredivisie, and has reiterated his desire to stay in Holland.

Liverpool journalist Paul Gorst also shut down any speculation regarding the player who had been linked with a move to Merseyside.

Max Clark

Clark too was dismissive of the links, describing them as just rumours at this stage.

It’s nice to be linked to them. I think everyone would be happy with these teams. It’s great, but it’s rumours.

I don’t want to play there either, because I want to go into Europe with Vitesse. So I don’t do anything with it.

With Andrew Robertson the only senior specialist left-back at the club, James Milner has had to step in as a backup whenever required. Clarke, who recently featured in a line-up assembling the statistically best-rated English players, has been touted as the top choice to be the Scotsman’s understudy. (h/t Sky Sports)

Clarke’s contract at Vitesse runs until the summer of 2021, having joined the club from Hull City in 2018. The defender has made 18 appearances for Vitesse this season and has scored one goal while assisting thrice. (h/t Whoscored)
