Player Profiles: Gime Toure

Gime Toure was born on 7th May 1994 and started his career with French side Brest and made five appearances for their B team during his early years.

A move to Viry-Chatillion then followed as the young forward started to learn his trade. It was during his time here that Toure started to attract scouts from several Premier League teams, such was his undoubted potential.

Eventually, one side did take their interest further when West Bromwich Albion took Gime on trial back in 2014/15.

Despite impressing at The Hawthornes, Toure returned to his native France to join La Roche for the 2015/16 season.

Twelve months later, Gime joined Fontenay LCVF who compete in the French Championnat National 2, Group D, yet with First Team opportunities proving to be at a premium, he decided to move across the English Channel to try his luck in England.

The first team to show an interest were our National League rivals and first day opponents Wrexham.

After appearing in six of the Red Dragon’s pre-season outings, Toure had become somewhat of a cult hero at the Racecourse Ground, and it was somewhat of a surprise to them when Manager Dean Keates decided not to take his interest any further.

Sir John then brought Gime to the Moss Rose, and after impressing in the friendly win against Crewe Alexandra he was eager to sign the Frenchman up.

Toure duly signed for Macc on a one year contract, and his arrival has elicited a great deal of optimism from the Moss Rose faithful.
