talkSPORT understands that Norwich are in pole position to land the striker, after Canaries boss Chris Hughton travelled to Celtic Park on Thursday to see Hooper score a late winner for the Hoops against Motherwell.
Hughton is keen to add to his attacking options, as his side have often struggled to find the net this season, with Grant Holt the club's joint top scorer in the Premier League with just 4 goals.
Sunderland and Stoke have also struggled in front of goal this season, scoring just 21 times in the league so far, and are eyeing a move for Hooper.
The 24-year-old has just 18 months left on his Celtic contract and is keen to move to the Premier League.
Hooper has been a revelation since moving north of the border from Scunthorpe in 2010, scoring 62 goals in 106 games.
Celtic have offered him an improved deal, but talkSPORT has been told the terms are not in line with the current top earners at the club, which could speed up a move to England.
