Vitor Roque

Vitor Roque is a Brazilian footballer who plays as a forward for Brasileirao club Athletico Paranaense and the Brazil national team. The attention of various European teams is on Vitor Roque. The Athletico Paranaense striker has drawn interest from clubs in the Premier League, including Barcelona.

 

Many people were impressed by his performances in the Brasileiro and the U20 South American tournament, where he won both events with six goals. It was discovered earlier this year that the agent and the player's father had meetings with many European teams. The last team was Barcelona, who now looks to have the upper hand in the competition to hire the striker in the not-too-distant future.

 

Football career:

 

Vitor Roque entered América Mineiro's youth program at the age of 10 and made a strong impression with the team's young divisions in 2018. Vitor Roque signed his first professional deal with Cruzeiro on May 25, 2021. On October 12, he made his professional debut. He replaced Bruno José in the second half of a 0-0 Série B home tie against Botafogo and played for 18 minutes before being replaced by Keke. Manager Vanderlei Luxemburgo praised him for his debut while also saying that he was "unable to keep the pace." In a 2-2 Campeonato Mineiro home tie, Vitor Roque, who was already a member of the first squad for the 2022 campaign, scored the club's first goal.

 

The greatest move in Paranaense history occurred on April 13, 2022, when Vitor Roque signed a five-year contract with Athletico Paranaense after the team exercised his R$ 24 million release clause.

 

International career:

 

Vitor Roque was first called up to the Brazil national team on March 3, 2023, by interim head coach Ramon Menezes to participate in a friendly match against Morocco on March 25, 2023. He entered the game in the 65th minute in a 2-1 loss at the Ibn Batouta Stadium.
