Iuri José Picanço Medeiros (born 10 July 1994) is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays for Italian club Genoa C.F.C. on loan from Sporting CP as a midfielder.

Club career[edit]

Born in Horta, Azores, Faial Island, Medeiros joined Sporting CP's youth system in 2005, aged 11. He went on to spend three full seasons with their reserves in the Segunda Liga, his debut as a professional arriving of on 11 August 2012 as he came on as a 62nd-minute substitute for Filipe Chaby in a 0−1 away loss against U.D. Oliveirense.[2]

In the 2015 January transfer window, Medeiros was loaned to F.C. Arouca,[3] playing his first game in the Primeira Liga on the 18th in a 0−1 defeat at Moreirense FC.[4] He subsequently served two season-long top division loans, at Moreirense[5] and Boavista FC;[6] while at the service of the former, he scored his first goal in the competition on 25 September 2015 to help to a 2−2 home draw to FC Porto[7] and, on 12 March 2017, netted a brace to help the latter defeat C.S. Marítimo 3−0.[8]

Returned to the Estádio José Alvalade for the 2017−18 campaign,[9] Medeiros made his competitive debut for Sporting's first team on 15 August 2017, playing the last minutes of the 0−0 home draw against FC Steaua București in the UEFA Champions League play-off round.[10] He was, however, quickly deemed surplus to requirements by manager Jorge Jesus.[11]

On 25 January 2018, Medeiros signed with Genoa C.F.C. on loan until June 2019, with the Italian club having the option to make the move permanent for 10 million.[12][13] He made his Serie A debut on 5 February, playing 25 minutes in a 2−1 away win over S.S. Lazio.[14] He scored his first goal for his new team on 3 April in his first start, helping the hosts defeat Cagliari Calcio 2−1 with a last-minute effort.[15]

International career[edit]

Medeiros participated in two UEFA European Under-21 Championship editions with Portugal.[16][17] In 2015, he collected four substitute appearances for the runners-up.[18][19][20][21]

Medeiros was also selected by coach Rui Jorge for his squad that appeared at the 2016 Summer Olympics,[22] being an unused member in an eventual quarter-final exit in Rio de Janeiro.
