The company is in discussion with lenders for a $2.5 billion financing that comes with a $1 billion greenshoe option, Bloomberg said.

The price talk for the three-year loan margin is less than 100 basis points over Libor, Bloomberg reported.

Ant Financial was not immediately available for a comment.
