Leeds United are reportedly interested in signing Wigan Athletic forward Joe Gelhardt according to the Yorkshire Evening Post.
Gelhardt has caught the eye with some impressive performances to date for the Latics, having made 18 appearances for the first-team this term.
But Wigan have had off-the-field problems in recent months, with the club recently being placed into administration after financial troubles.
Therefore it could lead to a number of players leaving the club in the summer, as they look to find funds, with Gelhardt being one of those attracting interest.
But the Yorkshire Evening Post have also claimed that Leeds face competition from Premier League clubs to land his signature, in what is likely to be an almighty transfer tussle heading into the summer.
Plenty of the Elland Road faithful took to social media to issue their thoughts on Leeds’ rumoured interest in Gelhardt.
Take a look at the best of the reaction from Twitter below….
It’s a no from me. We need a proven goalscorer at that level.

Think about it, if he’s that bad why would PL clubs be interested. I fully trust Bielsa scouting team when it comes to finding gems from England / Lower leagues.
Honestly how many of us wrote off White before he even kicked a ball and now he’s worth 10x more the value

Waste of money unless it’s for juniors. We’ve got people who can’t score already

Unproven unless a backup frontman

Fine for the academy.

Hopefully the draw of Bielsa will help. Players certainly talk of improving a lot under him
