GC ZÜRICH SIGN BRAYAN RIASCOS UNTIL END OF SEASON

Grasshopper Club Zürich are pleased to announce the signing of centre-forward Brayan Riascos. The 27-year-old Colombian striker joins GC Zurich from Metalist Kharkiv until the end of the season, a transfer made possible due to the extraordinary transfer window introduced by FIFA, for players in the Ukrainian league.

Brayan Riascos grew up in the youth academy of Brazilian club Corinthians and continued his career in Portugal, where he played 55 games in Portugal’s top division with CD Nacional, among others. 

Most recently, Riascos was part of Ukrainian club Metalist Kharkiv with whom he played 15 championship matches in the current season, scoring six goals and providing three assists. The Colombian striker now joins GC Zürich until the end of June to play the remainder of the season with the Grasshoppers.

"With Brayan Riascos we gain a fast and physically strong player who will help us in the last quarter of the season with his experience and qualities. At the same time, we are proud to be able to offer him the opportunity to continue pursuing his work and his passion,” said Technical Director Seyi Olofinjana. 

Riascos has already begun training at the GC/Campus and is now awaiting his work permit, which will be issued by the Zurich immigration office in the coming weeks.

Grasshopper Club Zürich welcomes Brayan Riascos and wishes him every success in Zurich.
