St James’ Park side keen on Loftus Road forward.
Newcastle have made a player plus cash offer for QPR striker Loic Remy, report the Daily Mirror.
The report suggests that Newcastle manager Alan Pardew is willing to offer £6million as well as defender Steven Taylor, in order to obtain star striker Loic Remy from relegated QPR. Having signed Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa in January, and captain Fabricio Coloccini confirming he will stay at the club, the Toon are able to let Taylor go this summer.
Remy, who rejected Newcastle in January in favour of a move to London with QPR, is plotting his escape route from Loftus Road, with Newcastle, as well as Arsenal keen on signing the French forward. After failing to sign Arouna Kone, who joined Everton this week, Newcastle return to Remy as they look for a replacement for the previously sold Demba Ba.
QPR, having lost defender Chris Samba this summer, selling him back to Anzhi Makhachkala for £12million, are looking for a centre half to replace him, with Taylor being sent to the club to fill the void, making the offer more attractive to Tony Fernandez.
Not guaranteed first team football at Newcastle, the move to London may be in Taylor’s best interest heading into the next season if he has any aspirations of an England call-up. Loic Remy is reportedly available for £8million this summer, and implementing Taylor in the deal is attractive for both parties.
