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

The Daily Express says QPR are believed to be interested in his signature but Hooper, who learned his trade in the non-league game for Grays Athletic, would be more open to a move to the Premier League than one to the Championship.

Hooper's formidable partnership with Anthony Stokes at Celtic Park has been crucial to his success but Hammers boss Sam Allardyce is known to be a fan of playing with a lone striker.
