Grasshopper Club Zurich are pleased to announce the signing of centre-forward Guilherme Schettine. The 26-year-old Brazilian striker joins GC on loan from SC Braga until the summer of 2023, with an option to buy.
Schettine grew up in Brazil and developed through the youth teams of Club Athletico Paranaense. In 2017, at the age of 21, he moved to Portugal and joined CD Santa Clara. In 2019, the Brazilian signed for SC Braga and subsequently went through two loan spells.
In the past few seasons, the centre-forward played a total of 71 games in Portugal's highest division. He also made 6 appearances in the UEFA Europa League with SC Braga. Most recently, he was loaned to FC Vizela, with whom he scored 8 goals in 28 official matches in the Liga Portugal Bwin.
"With Schettine we are signing a good finisher, who has already gained experience in Europe. With his offensive skills and his mobility, he represents a valuable addition to our attacking game, said Sporting Director Bernt Haas.
Schettine, who has chosen number 95, will be at coach Continis disposal after obtaining his work permit. Grasshopper Club Zurich welcomes Guilherme Schettine to Zurich and wishes him all the best for the season.
