U.S. private equity firm Hellman & Friedman is the frontrunner in the race to acquire Nets (>> Nets), Scandinavia's largest payments processor, the Financial Times reported, citing people close to the discussions.

Nets is seeing "considerable interest" from potential buyers, Chief Executive Bo Nilsson had said earlier this month.

Nets could be the next big deal in the sector following a flurry of acquisitions, including U.S. credit card payments processor Vantiv (>> Vantiv Inc) finalising a deal to buy Britain's biggest payments processor Worldpay (>> Worldpay Group) for 8 billion pounds earlier this month.

U.S. payment giants and Mastercard (>> MasterCard) are both seen as suitors for Nets, which has a current market capitalisation of 29.16 billion Danish crowns according to Thomson Reuters data.

Hellman & Friedman could not be immediately reached for comment while Nets did not immediately comment on the report.
