The club are set to make an offer of £6million, and are willing to match his £40,000 a week wages.
Newcastle are said to want closer to £10million for the forward, who they signed for just below that figure in the 2012 January transfer window.
Alan Pardew’s side rejected two £8million offers for the forward on transfer deadline day, one from a mystery Middle East club, and one from Fenerbachce’s Turkish rivals Trazbonspor.

Cisse has managed just three goals for Newcastle this season, with just one strike in the Premier League – a penalty in the 5-1 win over Stoke on Boxing Day.
