The offer is for about $13 per Caesars share, representing a 30% premium from Friday, June 21. Including Caesars' debt, the deal would be valued at about $18 billion.

The companies will announce the deal on Monday, the reports said. Following the deal closure, it is expected that the combined company will be split equally with both companies' shareholders.
