Scunthorpe United striker Gary Hooper is attracting major Premiership interest.

The Daily Mail says Wolves, Wigan and Celtic have joined the race to sign Scunthorpe United’s in-demand £2m rated striker Hooper.

Hooper, who has scored 19 goals this season, was already a summer target for Derby County, Coventry City and Ipswich Town.

But his form for Scunthorpe has now attracted the interest of Premier League rivals Wolves and Wigan as well as Celtic.

Hooper, 22, cost Scunthorpe £175,000 from Southend in July 2008 but his value has rocketed since then.
