The Magpies will offer Taylor plus cash to sign Remy.
Newcastle United are preparing an offer for QPR striker Loic Remy that would include £6m in cash plus centre-back Steven Taylor, according to the Mirror.
Having missed out on Arouna Kone on Monday after the former Wigan forward chose Everton over the Magpies, manager Alan Pardew has turned his attention back to previous target Remy.
The Frenchman was another attacking threat that Pardew failed to sign, when back in January the 26-year-old chose to move to Loftus Road rather than the north east of England.
However, following relegation to the Championship at the end of last season, the Hoops are keen to offload high earners such as Remy and Newcastle see the striker as the perfect addition to their French revolution.
There are currently 10 players at the club who have represented France at international level at various age groups and therefore the striker should find it easier to fit in.
Having only been in England for six months it’s thought that the former Marseille man is keen to stay in the country for a while longer and is likely to accept an offer from St James’ Park.
Taylor meanwhile is Newcastle’s longest serving current player, having progressed through the youth ranks at the club and into the first team in 2003.
Since then the 27-year-old has made 223 appearances in all competitions for the club, but is now on the fringes of the first team behind the likes of Fabricio Coloccini and Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa.
QPR are also likely to be favourable towards this deal as since losing Christopher Samba back to previous side Anzhi Makhachkala, there is a gap to fill in the Rangers’ back four.
Remy has made the headlines for the wrong reasons in recent times though, as the forward was arrested back in May this year with two other men on suspicion of rape and has been released by police until September.
