Thohir bids for WBA?

Reports say Inter President Erick Thohir has had a proposal to take over West Bromwich Albion turned down.

Corriere dello Sport reports today that the Indonesian wants to own a Premier League club and has already presented an offer to the Baggies.

The first proposal was turned down but the report says Thohir wants to enter the league due to its lucrative TV rights deals and could return to make another bid.

Thohir is also continuing to look for new investors in the Nerazzurri and according to the outlet there are two Chinese groups interested.

Corriere writes that 20% of the club’s shares could be sold for a fee of between €70m and €100m.

This would mean former President Massimo Moratti would sell six per cent of his remaining shares and Thohir would give up 14 per cent of his, leaving them with 23.5% and 56% of the club’s shares respectively.
