A goalkeeper with impressive reflexes, Joao was the first choice shot-stopper for Arsenal at U18 level last season.

Signed as a schoolboy from Benfica in 2015, the prospect featured in the UEFA Youth League last season while he also made the bench for Arsenal U23s on eight occasions.

A Portuguese youth international, Joao won the U17 European Championship in 2016 and was also part of his country’s squad at the Rio Olympics.

This season Joao is likely to continue to play regularly for Arsenal U18s, while he will be aiming to make his competitive debut for the U23s.
