(Reuters) - Alphabet Inc's (GOOG.O) Google is in talks with publishers on paying a licensing fee for content that would be packaged in a premium news product, the Wall Street Journal reported here citing people familiar with the matter.

Talks are early, and it is unclear if agreements will be reached, according to the report. Most of the publishers in talks with Google are outside the United States, including in France and Europe, one of the people told the Journal.
