​Newcastle scouting Young Boys teenager Toure

Newcastle United are looking at Switzerland's under-17 striker Yannick Toure with the intention of placing him in their development squad.

Toure is currently playing with Young Boys, but he is out of contract in the summer.

While he may not be ready for the first team, Newcastle would like to have him be a part of their development team. The club believes he could be ready to join the first team in a couple seasons.

While Toure is originally from Senegal, he has a Swiss passport, which makes the signing easier. He is also on the radar of clubs like Arsenal and Juventus.
