Marseille want loan move for defender Isaak Touré

According to L’Équipe Olympique de Marseille want to loan out young defender Souleymane Isaak Touré (19), who signed in the summer from Ligue 2 side Le Havre. The Olympians meanwhile will be counting on the fitness of centre-back Eric Bailly, who is returning from injury.

Isaak Touré signed for Marseille in the summer for €5.5m, choosing to turn down a substantial offer from Premier League giants Manchester City and staying in France on a 5-year deal. If he signed for the Premier League side, he would have been loaned out to fellow City Group football club, Troyes – yet Marseille managed to convince the player to stay in France. 

However, Isaak Touré has only made five appearances thus far this season, being played more often than not out-of-position in the wing-back position by manager Igor Tudor. Thus, Marseille are looking for a loan-deal to see the player receive more game time in what is a vital stage of his development at the age of 19.
