Popular game streaming  service Twitch.TV is discussing a potential buyout by Google, The Wall Street Journal reports.

The deal is still in the early stages, and is in no way imminent, its sources say.

An earlier report by Variety suggested that the acquisition price being proposed was $1 billion, which would be the largest deal Twitch has engaged in.

Last year, Twitch made deals with both Microsoft and Sony to secure a place as the streaming provider on both Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
