Superstar couple Beyonce and Jay Z are reportedly close to closing a deal on a Beverly Hills mansion.

The high-profile pair has recently been rumoured to be house hunting in Paris, France but according to editors at Tmz.com, they are currently in a bidding war for a plush home in California.

The mansion is listed for $85 million (£53 million) and the stars are the front runners to purchase the property against four other bidders.
