Either a Chess Grandmaster or this. Or both.
Will be interesting to see whether it is him personally buying the club, or the investment fund his company is owned by, and which he is a board member of. Their Wikipedia entry says they were looking at buying Inter Milan last year…

Semmens et al staying
That s fair enough - its not been the running of the club that the big issue - just the fact we are potless
