The Canaries saw a bid for the prolific 24-year-old rejected last week but boss Chris Hughton is understood to be planning an increased offer in the coming days.
Hooper turned down a new contract offer from the Scottish Champions earlier this month and is understood to be keen to move to the Premier League before the close of the transfer window – despite the Bhoys continued participation in the Champions League.
Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas is in need of fresh attacking options, with Emmanuel Adebayor currently at the African Cup of Nations and Jermain Defoe’s struggling to fine the net after a fine start to the season.
Spurs have been linked with moves for the the likes of Fernando Llorente, Leandro Damiao and Alvaro Negredo but it is understood that chairman Daniel Levy believes that the £6m rated former Scunthorpe man represents better value for money that the club’s other targets.
Hooper has been on fine form for the SPL leaders this term, netting 11 goals in 17 appearances in the league and scoring twice in Celtic’s heroic Champions League group stage showing.
