CORRECTED-European stocks flat ahead of U.S. payrolls

(Corrects paragraph 3 to say Thyssenkrupp rose on a report Kone was considering a bid with a private equity partner for the company’s elevator business, not Kone saying it would bid)

Sept 6 (Reuters) - European stocks opened flat on Friday after two sessions of gains, as the effect of this week’s upbeat signals on U.S.-China trade talks and European politics wore off, with investors’ attention turning to U.S. jobs data due later in the day.

The pan-European STOXX 600 index was roughly unchanged at 0715 GMT after starting marginally lower, with the exporter-heavy FTSE 100 lagging the broader market as London-listed miners fell.

Thyssenkrupp AG was the biggest gainer on Germany’s DAX index with a 1.3% gain after a report Finland’s Kone was considering teaming up with a private equity partner to bid for the conglomerate’s elevator business.

The DAX rose 0.3%, shrugging off data showing an unexpected fall in industrial output in July. (Reporting by Sagarika Jaisinghani and Agamoni Ghosh in Bengaluru; editing by Patrick Graham)
