Tiffany & Co. and LVMH are getting closer to striking a new deal to finalize the takeover process of the American jewelry retailer by the French luxury company, the Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday, citing sources with knowledge of the issue.

According to the report, the sides will agree on a price of $131.50 per Tiffany share, contrasted to the previously agreed $135 per share.
