Toure is currently working inside Tottenham's academy as he continues to pick up coaching experience.
Dimitri Selyuk told Sport-Express: “Yaya, on the other hand, is studying and, accordingly, worked at Akhmat (as assistant coach). Now he will have the next step: he works with youth at Tottenham, and (Mikel) Arteta said that the doors of Arsenal are open for Yaya.
"And, given that he is studying for a license in England, it is simply more convenient for him to work there. Yaya says a huge thank you to the Akhmat leadership. He is glad that he was given the opportunity to work there. We agreed with Akhmat that such a situation is possible in the winter, so many thanks to them.
"Do I admit that he can return to Russia? Never say never. Let's see."
