It has been reported that Newcastle are set to open talks with Young Boys in the next 24 hours regarding signing the 17-year-old striker.
Arsenal, Juventus and Salzburg are also claimed to be interested in the talented and promising teenage striker.
“Toure would be available for a compensation fee set by FIFA as he is yet to sign a new contract with Young Boys,” adds the report in The Daily Mail.
Toure is a very promising young player and can be a very good signing for Newcastle in the long run.
However, questions must be asked if the 17-year-old is really what the Magpies need at this moment in time.
Rafael Benitez’s side need to sign proven and experienced players who can help the team in avoiding relegation to the Championship at the end of the season.
Although Toure would be a good signing in the long run, fans will want to see Newcastle bring in players who can make instant impact.
Newcastle need to sign a proven goalscorer in the January transfer window who can score 10 to 15 goals in the Premier League during the second season of the campaign.
