Billionaire Li Ka-shing is closing in on a sale of his European telecommunication towers to Spain’s Cellnex Telecom SA for about 10 billion euros ($11.7 billion).

Li’s Hong Kong-based conglomerate CK Hutchison Holdings Ltd. has reached a “substantial agreement” on terms but hasn’t taken a final decision, according to a filing Wednesday. Cellnex separately confirmed the talks that Bloomberg News reported last month, without disclosing a value.
