Lyanco made his professional debut as a substitute in a 2–1 win against Atlético Paranaense.[1] He started and played the 90 minutes in his third professional match, a 0–0 draw against Joinville.[2]

On 29 March 2017, it was announced that Lyanco had signed a five-year contract with Serie A club Torino, for a reported fee of €6 million plus bonuses.[3][4] He immediately moved to Turin to begin training with the team, and facilitate his acclimatisation to the club, at the orders of Siniša Mihajlović.[3] His league debut came on 20 September 2017 in a 3-2 victory over Udinese Calcio.[5]

On 31 January 2019, Lyanco joined to Bologna on loan until 30 June 2019.[6]

International careerEdit

On 28 January 2016, Lyanco announced on his official Twitter account that he had agreed with officials from the Football Association of Serbia, to represent Serbian youth teams at international level.[7] In the future, he could still decide to play for Brazil.[8]
