Previous clubs


Left-footed defender Nuno was our first signing of the summer when he completed his move from Benfica in July 2021.

A fast, powerful full back, he made his Primeira Liga bow in August 2019 at the age of 19, scoring and contributing two assists that day, helping his side to a 5-0 home win over Pacos de Ferreira.

He played at right back on his debut, but is usually more at home on the left. He also featured against Arsenal for Benfica in the Europa League last season, and in pre-season he had his first run out in Arsenal colours in our 2-2 draw with Glasgow Rangers, scoring a fine right-footed goal after 24 minutes.

A Portugal youth international, he has represented his country at under-18, under-19 and under-21 levels.
