U.S.-based Watson Pharmaceuticals Inc. (WPI) is nearing a deal to buy Swiss generic drug maker Actavis Group for about $7 billion, Reuters reported Wednesday, citing three people familiar with the matter.

Watson would pay between EUR5 billion and EUR5.5 billion in the transaction for Actavis, sources said. By virtue of a leveraged buyout in 2007, Deutsche Bank AG (DB) was left holding billions of euros in Actavis debt.

Spokesmen for Watson, Actavis and Deutsche Bank declined comment to Reuters.
