Club career

Born in Areado, Minas Gerais, Toscano was a São Vicente youth graduate. Initially a forward, he was converted to a right back during his time at Paulista, mainly due to the lack of goals.[1]

Back as a striker at Paraná, Toscano scored ten goals in 2009 Campeonato Brasileiro Série B, being the club's top goalscorer. On 20 August 2010 he moved abroad for the first time in his career, after agreeing to a four-year deal with Primeira Liga side Vitória de Guimarães.[2]

Toscano made his debut in the main category of Portuguese football on 28 August, starting and scoring a hat-trick in a 3–1 away win against C.D. Nacional. On 21 December 2012 he rescinded his contract,[3] and signed for Figueirense in the following day.[4]

Toscano appeared rarely for Figueira, and subsequently joined Comercial de Ribeirão Preto.[5] On 14 April 2014 he moved to Vila Nova,[6] but rescinded his link only two months later.[7]

Toscano finished the year with Cuiabá,[8] scoring three goals in Série C. In November 2014 he joined Mirassol,[9] and was the top goalscorer in 2015 Campeonato Paulista Série A2.

On 16 April 2015 Toscano moved to Série B side América Mineiro.[10]

Having successfully getting América Mineiro promoted to the Série A Toscano signed for Jeju United FC on 7 December 2015.[11]
