Sky Bet Championship side Fulham are considering making a late move to sign Norwich City striker Gary Hooper, as his move to Sheffield Wednesday stalls, Football League World have been informed by a source close to Fulham.
The 27-year-old was bought by Norwich City from Celtic in 2013 for £5 million, but only managed six goals in his first season at the club, and following their relegation, he then scored 12 goals in the Championship to help them back to promotion.
Despite coming on against Southampton on Sunday, he looks prepped for a move away from the Canaries, with Sheffield Wednesday thought to be the main suitors for his signature.
A move to Hillsborough looked all but done, but it’s now beginning to stall and now FLW have been informed that Championship rivals Fulham have enquired into his services.
The Whites hardly lack firepower, but adding Hooper certainly wouldn’t hurt as they look for a far better season than the horror show Craven Cottage experienced in 2014/15 Sky Bet Championship campaign.
