Samuel Armenteros (born 27 May 1990 in Masthugget, Gothenburg) is a Swedish footballer of Cuban descent who plays as a striker for Willem II, on loan from Anderlecht, in the Dutch Eredivisie.


The son of a Cuban father and a Swedish mother, Armenteros moved to the Netherlands at age 16 to join SC Heerenveen's youth system, and made it into the first team under head coach Gertjan Verbeek. He was successively released by Heerenveen in 2009, and later chose to rejoin Verbeek at Heracles Almelo, where he showed himself as a promising striker and managed to score his first Eredivisie goals.
