Owner of Inter Milan Erick Thohir is in London to attend Chelsea's Champions League quarter-final tie against PSG on Tuesday night, reports talkSPORT.

The Indonesian businessman will attend the crunch tie at Stamford Bridge as a guest of the west London club but is hoping to mix business with pleasure during his time in the capital.

Inter Milan are reportedly laying the groundwork ahead of a big summer of spending in the transfer window and Chelsea could be end up being one of their main hunting grounds.

The Milan outfit are rumoured to be interested in Fernando Torres, who is set to be sold by Jose Mourinho after another disappointing season for the Blues. Thohir will personally keep his eye on the Spaniard during tonight's game, assuming he plays ahead of the returning Samuel Eto'o.

Torres is ready to bring his days at Stamford Bridge to an end following the constant public criticism from manager Mourinho.

Thohir is hoping to get a firm feel for whether Torres can succeed in Serie A and understandably has concerns that he may never revitalise the form of his Liverpool days.

But he won't just be looking at Torres if reports are to be believed. Inter are also in the market for a midfielder and are rumoured to have put Jon Obi Mikel on their shortlist.

With the World Cup starting in the second week of June, clubs will have to act swiftly to secure players before in commences.

Thohir's presence at Stamford Bridge tonight, therefore, represents a perfect opportunity to get the ball rolling on any transfer talks.
