Talk Sport is today reporting that English Premier League outfit Norwich City are close to signing Celtic forward Gary Hooper this month.
The story might surprise a few as Hooper is of course set to play in the knockout stages of the Champions League for the Scottish Champions, but a move to the Premier League might be enough to lure him away from Celtic park.
It is thought that Norwich have had their eye on the prolific forward for a while now and they seem to have made their move in the transfer window. Although nothing is confirmed yet, it looks as though Hooper mighty be heading to Norfolk.
The Canaries are in need of goals, especially from their strikers’ as Grant Holt has only netted four times in the top flight this campaign.
The former Scunthorpe man is a natural goalscorer and he has expressed his desire to play in the Premier League on numerous occasions.
Many thought he might wait until the summer and see what he could achieve in the Champions League with Celtic, but if a move is there for him, then Gary Hooper could be tempted to move on in the next few days.
We shall see.
