It is understood that Yahoo and its team of advisers have spent the past week evaluating possible tie-ups with media and technology companies that would save it from being swallowed by Microsoft.
The Times said one option being explored is to restart merger talks with AOL. Tie-ups with groups such as Google Inc or Walt Disney Co are also being considered.
Yahoo and AOL previously failed to join forces because of differences over price.
