What can Barcelona expect from new signing Vitor Roque?

Barcelona have finally wrapped up the signing of the young Brazilian forward Vitor Roque, and according to the club, he will be a Barcelona player until 2031.

They have made a long-term investment in a player who they expect will be a star in the next few years. This GSFN article will explain what Barcelona fans can expect from Vitor Roque, and why he is such an exciting talent.

At 18 years old, Roque is already seen as a reliable finisher in front of goal, something that he has shown this season with both his club and country. In the South American U20 games with the Brazilian team, he scored six goals. He has also been the top scorer, and standout performer.

One of the first traits that shines when looking at the Brazilian is his energy and tenacity. He is an excellent presser of the ball, and is not shy to engage in a tussle with defenders. He puts himself about on the pitch and will run tirelessly all game.

Roque’s understanding of the game and maturity are uncommon traits amongst players as young as himself, but that is what sets him apart. Stylistically he could be compared to fellow Brazilian forward and former Liverpool man Roberto Firmino. He is fairly small in stature, with an eye for goal and an energy and determination that are hard to match.

Roque will join Barcelona in 2024 and it’s fair to say that Barça fans have reason to be excited.
