Werder Bremen have confirmed midfielder Idrissa Toure has joined Juventus on loan until the end of the season, with the Serie A champions having the option to make the move permanent in 2019.
Toure, 20, has spent just a year at Werder having previously been at RB Leipzig and then Schalke, featuring for both clubs` reserve sides.
The Berlin-born midfielder has just a single first-team appearance to his name in his fledgling career, after making a brief cameo for Leipzig in the second tier during the 2015-16 campaign.
Toure will initially join up with Juve`s reserve team in Serie C, but should the former Germany Under-19 international impress in Italy, the Old Lady can take up their purchase option before his season-long loan expires.
Idrissa should train regularly with the first team and get minutes for the second team. It`s a very good opportunity for him to develop at the highest level, Werder sporting director Frank Baumann told the club`s official website.
Idrissa has signed for Italian champions on loan with an option to buy.
We wish you all the best in Turin, Idrissa!
