He made his debut for Young Boys on 13 March 2011 against FC St. Gallen and would make a further five appearances that term. During the second part of the 2011–12 season Tosetti would go on loan to second-tier side FC Wohlen, making his debut against SC Kriens on 21 March 2012 in a 3–0 victory.[1] He continued his loan into the 2012–13 season and scored his first goal for Wohlen on 22 July 2012 in a 1–0 away win over FC Wil.

In July 2013, he joined FC Lugano on loan from BSC Young Boys. On 19 February 2014, he was then sold to Lugano.[2]
