Juventus have signed Werder Bremen midfielder Idrissa Toure on loan with an option to make the move permanent at the end of the season.

Toure, 20, will link up with Juve's reserve team in Serie C, having made one first-team appearance in his year at Bremen so far.

The midfielder has also played for RB Leipzig and Schalke in his native Germany.

"Idrissa should train regularly with the first team and get minutes for the second team [at Juventus]," Bremen sporting director Frank Baumann told the club's website.

"It is a very good opportunity for him to develop at the highest level."
