signing expressed his excitement for his new J.League adventure, after the club announced the striker’s arrival from Atletico Paranaense on Monday.

The 26-year-old was the Brazilian Serie A’s top scorer in 2013 with 20 goals in 36 games, and most recently played for the United Arab Emirates’ on loan.

“I’m blessed to have been able to come to ,” Emerson commented.

“I’ve heard good things about Reysol’s organisation, facilities, and enthusiastic supporters, which, combined with my good impression of Japan, helped me make this decision.

“I can play in a central position or on the flanks, and want to demonstrate my scoring abilities. I look forward to contributing to Reysol’s victories.”
