Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba Group is expected to file the prospectus for its U.S. initial public offering next week, sources said on Wednesday, moving closer to that could be the biggest-ever listing by a technology firm.

Alibaba's documents could be filed as soon as Monday, added the sources, who couldn't be named because the plans aren't yet public. The IPO could be worth more than $16 billion, surpassing the previous record for a technology share sale set by Facebook in 2012, Reuters previously reported.

Alibaba had no comment to make on its IPO filing, a spokeswoman said.
