Hans "Hasse" Jeppson (10 May 1925 – 21 February 2013) was a Swedish football striker. He was known for his impressive goals to games ratio at several clubs, most of his career was spent with Napoli in Italy. Jeppson also played for Sweden and helped them to a third-place finish in the 1950 FIFA World Cup.
He began his career with Djurgårdens IF, transferring to Charlton Athletic where he played 11 matches in 1951, before moving to Italy to join Atalanta (1951–1952). Jeppson was the second Swedish player to be transferred to an English team, after Dan Ekner at Portsmouth.
He then moved to Napoli (1952–56) and Torino F.C. (1956–57) in the 1950s. In 1951 was bought from Atalanta. In 1952 he was sold to Napoli for 105 million lira, a new world record transfer-fee (for this reason the Napoli's fans nicknamed him o' banco e' napule, the bank of Naples). Jeppson played for Napoli from 1952 to 1956 scoring 52 goals. In 1956 Jeppson was sold to Torino. He retired in 1957.
