Hosseini joined the first team of Esteghlal in 2014 and made his first appearance for the club on 17 April 2015 as an 18-year-old. He spent a year on loan at Rah Ahan, before returning to Esteghlal and earning a spot in the first eleven. Hosseini was named to the Persian Gulf Pro League team of the season for 2017–18.

Trabzonspor[edit]

On 30 July 2018, Hosseini officially Süper Lig side Trabzonspor on a three-year contract joining his compatriot Vahid Amiri.[5] He was given the number 5 shirt, the same number he wore in Esteghlal the previous season.[6]

Hosseini made his international debut against Uzbekistan on 19 May 2018. In June 2018 he was named in Iran's squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.[7] After teammate Rouzbeh Cheshmi was injured in training, Hosseini started as centre back in Iran's two remaining group stage matches, playing every minute in the team's 0–1 loss to Spain and 1–1 tie with Portugal.
