Former Southampton chairman Nicola Cortese is being linked with a return to football.
TMW says Inter Milan owners Suning want to add Cortese to their front office.
Inter are to offer Cortese a management role and an approach could be made in the coming days.
The Italian could work alongside sports director Piero Ausilio, who is set to pen a new deal next month.
Cortese hasn't been involved in club football since leaving Saints.
