Born in Mongaguá, São Paulo, Alison joined Santos FC's youth setup in 2004, aged 8. On 10 September 2011 he made his professional debut, starting in a 1–0 home success over Cruzeiro. However, after only two minutes in field, he had to be replaced due to a knee injury, which kept him sidelined for six months. Alison later suffered the same injury when he was due to return, only appearing in a match in January 2013.
On 16 August 2013, after retaining a starting spot under Claudinei Oliveira, Alison renewed his link with Santos until December 2017. However, he suffered an injury during the latter stages of the campaign, and only returned in March 2014.
