The Ivorian midfielder is free move to anywhere after parting ways with Chinese outfit Qingdao Huanghai in the January transfer window.

Toure was spotted training with English outfit Leyton Orient last month, but he says he wouldn't mind playing in the Serie A and also didn't rule out a return to England or France.

“My career won’t go on forever, but I know that I have another one or two seasons left in me.

“I didn’t realise how much I’d miss playing football. I miss the energy, the locker room, the team spirit and the feeling you get when you win games.

“I am studying to get my coaching badges, but I have a lifetime ahead of me to try that avenue. If I stop playing now, when I still feel in good shape, I’ll always regret it.”

“I’d like to play in Italy, as I’ve never played there before, but maybe also in France or England, where I have great memories. I’d be ready for any challenge Serie A puts in front of me.

“It’s not about money. This is about football. I want to play because I know that I can still play.”
