Club careerEdit

Born in Natividade, Tocantins, Walisson graduated with Coritiba's youth setup. On 5 June 2011 he made his first team – and Série A – debut, starting in a 5–1 home routing over Vasco da Gama.[1]

After being demoted to the reserves, Walisson was subsequently loaned to Ituano, Fortaleza,[2] ASA,[3] J. Malucelli, Boa Esporte and Atlético Sorocaba.[4] With the Alagoas club he scored his first professional goal, netting his side's first in a 2–3 away loss against Boa for the Série B championship on 7 September 2012.[5]

On 29 September 2014 Walisson was again promoted to the main squad, along with fellow youth graduate Rafhael Lucas.[6]

In January 2018, having renewed his Coritiba contract until the end of 2019, he joined Vitória for the 2018 season.[7]
