The hotshot Bhoys forward is yet to sign a new contract at Celtic Park, and the report claims Tottenham are one of many Premier League clubs interested in bringing him south of the border.
But the report claims Andre Villas-Boas has dispatched scouts to watch Hooper - a player Tottenham rejected as a 14-year-old schoolboy back in 2002.
Hooper is quoted in the Daily Mirror, from an interview with the Scottish Sun newspaper in 2010 - just after he signed for Celtic from Scunthorpe - as saying: "I was released by Spurs when I was 14, I had been with them for seven years. I went on 20-minute trial - just 20 minutes of one game and they said no.
"How they can judge on 20 minutes I'll never know. The rejection from Tottenham has motivated me a lot. I want to prove to them I can play at the highest level.
"The disappointment of being released by Spurs has never left me - and ever since I've been trying my hardest to show what I can do. Spurs didn't believe in me and I think I've proved them wrong by joining Celtic."
The 24-year-old has been prolific since moving to the Scottish champions, scoring 55 goals in just 81 league games.
The former-Scunthorpe striker has a reputation as an out-and-out goalscorer, a player that works hard, and often steps up with goals in the big games.
His performances in the Champions League for Celtic this season have been superb, and have helped the Scottish club to reach the last-16 of the competition.
Spurs have just one senior striker available at the moment - Jermain Defoe - as Togo striker Emmanuel Adebayor is currently at the Africa Cup of Nations.
