Granada CF have confirmed on their official club website the signing of Brazilian promise Caio Emerson Marques Da Silva on a four-year contract until 2021.

Seven for Corinthians in under-17 Brazilian Cup
Caio is a left-footed forward with a nose for goal who scored seven in the recent edition of the under-17 Brazilian Cup. Granada have pulled off quite a coup as Liverpool, Barcelona and Chelsea have all been credited with an interest in the player after that tournament.
“I’m very happy to join Granada. I’m at a club that will give me everything I need to continue developing my career as a player and it’s a great city,” Caio said.
