QPR and West Ham United are chasing Celtic striker Gary Hooper.

The Scottish Sun says both London clubs are ready to launch £7million bids Hooper.

Hooper, who is in talks over an improved deal at Parkhead, was also targeted by newly-promoted Southampton.

But Saints are likely to drop their interest after their £7m bid for Burnley striker Jay Rodriguez was accepted yesterday.

That leaves QPR and play-off winners West Ham as the main suitors for Hooper.
