Sissoko, 23, said: “Toure is definitely a player I admire a lot. He’s had a fantastic career at all the clubs he’s been and won a lot of things.
“He’s a huge player for Manchester City.
“I do think we have got similar styles — we’re both powerful players and both like to get forward and try to score goals.
“Toure is Toure and I’m my own man but he is definitely someone I look up to.
“If I could reach that level that would be great.
“It’s something to aim for and obviously I hope I can."
