Top 10 Chinese acquisitions in the US

U.S. memory chip maker Micron has dominated headlines this week amid reports that China's state-owned Tsinghua Unigroup is preparing a $23 billion takeover bid for the Idaho-based company.

The potential deal, while still unconfirmed, has already attracted its fair share of skeptics who doubt it will go through due to Tsinghua's low offer price and the fact that U.S. regulators are likely to be cautious about a large takeover by a Chinese state-owned company. If Tsinghua is able to pull it off, however, it would be the largest-ever Chinese takeover of a U.S. firm.

As investors await further clarity on the status of the deal, CNBC takes a look at the top 10 U.S. acquisitions by Chinese companies, based on data from Dealogic.
