Liverpool Keen On Hooper

Gary Hooper’s contract talks with Celtic have broken down, leaving the door open for Liverpool to sign the striker.

The Reds have only one recognizable striker fit, after Fabio Borini’s foot injury whilst on international duty with Italy, and believe the 24-year-old could solve their striker problems.

Hooper, who joined the Bhoys from Scunthorpe in 2010, has been in fine form for Neil Lennon’s men, with many believing his goalscoring exploits in the Champions League should have lead to an England call-up.

But contract talks with the Celtic Park side have stalled, and Liverpool are now eyeing a January transfer move for the former Southend United star.

talkSPORT understands Hooper is upset that numerous promises have been broken by the club regarding the new contract.
