Return measure in the context of another table

I have a measure called Top Customer that is calculated in a sales table. It identifies the customer code an item is sold to the most.

Top Customer = 
    TOPN (
        VALUES ( Sales[CustomerID] ), 
        RANKX( ALL( Sales[CustomerID] ), _Measures[Times Imported],,ASC)


I would like to return this measure in the context of my inventory table.


I do have an intermediate table called Item Branch that has all unique items as there are duplicates in the inventory and sales table.




Expected Output as table visual:


Inventory.Item TopCustomer

A                        AA
B                        AB

Thanks in advance and any SQLBI or related articles, I love to read.

@EnrichedUser , I doubt you can get it for an inventory item easily. what is the difference between Inventory.Item and ItemBranch.ItemID - are there more than one description, because you should try the same ItemBranch.ItemID or ItemBranch.Item

Item Branch is just a table with unique items. 

Inventory has duplicates of items and sales has duplicates.
