Report: Premier League trio battling for Gary Hooper

Crystal Palace, West Bromwich Albion and Brighton & Hove Albion are all said to be interested in Sheffield Wednesday striker Gary Hooper.

Crystal Palace, West Bromwich Albion and Brighton & Hove Albion are all reportedly interested in the services of Sheffield Wednesday striker Gary Hooper this January.

The 29-year-old has scored eight times in all competitions for Carlos Carvalhal's side so far this season, with seven in the last seven, including a brace in the 3-0 win over Leeds United before the international break.

According to The Sun, Hooper's form has led to interest from Palace, West Brom and Brighton, all of whom are contemplating making bids in the January transfer window.

The newspaper says that Palace are the most likely to land his signature, having failed to score a single league goal so far this term, while the Baggies are also in the hunt for Bournemouth's Benik Afobe and the Seagulls are contemplating a move for Newcastle United forward Aleksandar Mitrovic.

Hooper has scored 20 goals in 51 Championship appearances for the Owls since joining from Norwich City in 2016 and is thought to be available for around £6m.
