Life and career[edit]

Born in Dakar,[1] Touré played for the Academy Gentina Aldo during his youth.[4] He spent one month with Metz during the 2004–05 season, an experience that he described as leaving "a bitter taste".[4] In February 2005, as a part of a co-operation project between Metz and the Chengdu Football Association, Touré moved to China League One side Chengdu Wuniu on a free transfer.[5] Wearing the number 10 shirt,[6] he scored two goals in 18 league games during the 2005 season. Touré was also sent off twice.[7][8]

After spending time in China, Touré joined Wydad Casablanca.[1][4] Two years later, he joined Paykan on loan and scored 13 goals in 21 matches during the 2007–08 Iran Pro League campaign.[1][9] Touré was transferred to Persepolis in 2008 and scored 11 league goals in his only season with the club.[1][10] He moved to Sepahan in 2009 and helped the club win the Iran Pro League in successive seasons, scoring 18 goals in both campaigns.[1][2] Touré was signed by United Arab Emirates club Ajman in 2011 and continued to score regularly.[1] He had scored 14 goals in 16 league and cup matches by January 2012,[2] which led to interest from other clubs.[4] Touré joined Ligue 2 side Monaco later that month for an undisclosed fee,[4][11][12] and scored ten goals in 17 league appearances during the second half of the 2011–12 season.[2]

The following season, Touré played in 35 league games and scored 18 goals,[2] which helped Monaco win the Ligue 2 championship and promotion back to Ligue 1.[13][14]

On 14 August 2013 Touré signed for Al Nasr of the UAE Pro-League.[15]
