May 30 (Reuters) - Canada's Brookfield is nearing a deal to acquire a 53% stake in French renewable power producer Neoen, valuing it at around 6.1 billion euros ($6.59 billion), Bloomberg News reported on Thursday, citing people familiar with the matter.

Brookfield is buying the 42% stake owned by French billionaire Jacques Veyrat's Impala SAS holding company, the report said.

The Canadian asset manager will buy the remainder of the stake from some of Neoen's other shareholders at about 40 euros per share, it added.

Brookfield and Neoen did not immediately respond to Reuters' requests for comment.

Shares of the Neoen closed at 31.40 euros on Wednesday, giving the company a market cap of about 4.8 billion euros. ($1 = 0.9263 euros) (Reporting by Gnaneshwar Rajan in Bengaluru; Editing by Varun H K)
