Southampton set to swoop for Celtic’s Hooper

Southampton are again keen on Celtic striker Gary Hooper according to reports.

The Saints, who gained promotion to the Premier League this season, previously showed interest in Hooper in January but the Glasgow giants rejected their overtures.

However, it has emerged that Southampton manager Nigel Adkins is keen to get the former Scunthorpe United man to St Mary’s Stadium and is likely to again move for him this summer.

Hooper scored 29 goals in all competitions this season and was also the leading scorer as Celtic clinched the Scottish Premier League title making him a strong target for Adkins who is looking to build a competitive Premier League squad.
