Four producers are competing to bring Grammy-award-winning singer Taylor Swift to play in Tel Aviv this summer.

Swift’s representatives have been holding talks in recent weeks with four different Israeli producers and agents to have the American pop-singer perform in Tel Aviv’s Yarkon Park as part of her new concert tour. No contracts have yet been offered, Ynet reported.



The amount offered to Swift to perform in Tel Aviv has risen as high as $2.5 million, Ynet reported, citing unnamed sources in the Israeli  music industry.



If a concert takes place in Israel it would be in June, when the tour arrives in Europe.



Swift, 25, has sold more than 30 million albums and 80 million digital single downloads.
