The Guinean-born Toure made his professional debut for the New York Red Bulls second team in July 2020.

He wasn’t in the Big Apple for long, though, moving to Colorado Rapids in March and making his MLS debut for the club in July against San Jose Earthquakes.

The American has played 22 times for Colorado’s feeder team, the Colorado Springs Switchbacks, but it’s unclear whether he’s in Europe on the hunt for a move or just looking for experience.

He has been nicknamed ‘Yaya’ after former Barcelona and Manchester City player Yaya Toure.

Colorado chief executive Padraig Smith said of Toure in March: “Yaya is an exciting talent who has already shown tremendous potential through his USL Championship performances as a 16-year-old.

“He is powerful and explosive on the ball and has the ability to take on defenders, which allows him to make a difference.

“We believe he has all the qualities needed to develop into an elite player and we are excited to see what the future holds for him.”
