Web giant AOL Inc is looking into a possible tie-up with Yahoo! Inc, according to a Wall Street Journal (WSJ) report.
The WSJ says AOL, which has held merger talks with Yahoo! in the past, has fallen short of reaching a formal proposal.
AOL and a number of venture capital firms – including Silver Lake Partners and Blackstone Group – had recently made signals they were interested in teaming up to acquire Yahoo!
Yahoo! recently announced that, in a partnership with Samsung, they will distribute Yahoo! Connected TV (YCT) across Europe.
