Thohir is apparently currently in Italy meeting with Inter president Massimo Moratti about his bid to purchase the Nerazzurri.

It is believed that there has been talk of a minority stake with Thohir having a view toward a majority share of La Beneamata in a few years.

The 43-year-old entrepreneur apparently wants to purchase around 51% of Moratti's share in the Italian club, while the current owner only wants to sell him 20-30%.

It is understood that Moratti is hoping for a cash injection to boost the club's competitive status on the transfer market next season, as well as investment to fund a new stadium to replace the venerable San Siro.

Thohir is a well known sports investor with holdings in NBA side the Philadelphia 76ers and the MLS's DC United, as well as being president of the Southeast Asia Basketball Association.
