(Reuters) - Britain’s largest motor insurer Direct Line (DLGD.L) indicated it is interested in making a 400 million pound bid to buy Legal & General Group’s (LGEN.L) general insurance unit, Sky News reported on Wednesday, citing City sources.
A number of insurers and financial investors are considering offers for the unit, which is seen as non-core by the British insurer, Sky News said here.
L&G has been plotting the sale of the unit for a few weeks now, a source told Reuters.
Direct Line and L&G were not immediately available for comment.
