In a sign that an agreement could be struck by the mid-November deadline set by both sides, a compromise is emerging on the issue of what access EU boats will have to U.K. fishing waters, according to two people with knowledge of the EU side of the discussions.

Michel Barnier, the EU’s lead negotiator, has proposed that the EU’s share of the catch be cut to 15% to 18%, an offer that Downing Street dismissed in a statement as “risible.”

But the absence in Downing Street’s statement of any mention of these two other issues could spur expectations that a deal is within reach.

A report in The Times newspaper suggested that the European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen is putting pressure on Barnier by sending one of her most trusted officials to the talks. Citing two unidentified U.K. government officials, the report said the parties should agree to the basis of a trade relationship by next weekend.
