Anselmo Tadeu Silva do Nascimento (born October 24, 1980 in Brazil), commonly known as Anselmo or Anselmo, is a Brazilian footballer, who plays forward for Fortaleza.

He started his career in Palmeiras in 1998 and has since represented a large group of Brazilian clubs between 2003 and 2008. He made a short spell outside Brazil in 2003 when he played for Qatari club Al-Sailiya Sport Club. In 2008, Halmstads BK, looking for a replacement for Dusan Djuric, who had left for FC Zurich, chose to sign Anselmo;[1][2] costing 3 million SEK, he became the most expensive player the club ever had bought so far. As Anselmos contract ended and the Halmstad unable to provide the amounts Anselmo wished for to sign a new contract, he departed the club and signed for Brazilian club Botafogo (SP).[3]
