West Ham United have been warned to get serious if they want to sign Celtic striker Gary Hooper.

West Ham United have been warned to get serious if they want to sign Celtic striker Gary Hooper.

The Daily Star says the Hammers have been linked with a move for the 25-year-old, who has hit 63 goals in 90 starts.

Celtic are desperate to keep their £10m-rated star forward, but know that a chance for him to move to the Premier League could be too tempting.

Hoops boss Neil Lennon said: “He is a brilliant young English player. We would love to hold on to him, it is a priority for me, but if we get a bid in that is good business for the club we may have to think again.

“You don’t want to see your best players go, but everyone has a selling point and we’re no different to anyone else.”
