Apple is looking to seal a deal that could pump up to $4 million into the cash-strapped Chicago Transit Authority.A CTA spokesperson confirms the agency is in talks with the computer company.

Apple reportedly wants to pay for an upgrade of the subway station at North and Clybourn, which is adjacent to an Apple retail store now under construction, and in exchange for its millions Apple would get first dibs on any advertising that eventually goes up at the train stop.

There's no date set yet for when the station rehab could begin.
