Vinicius Moreira de Lima (born 11 June 1996), known as Lima, is a Brazilian footballer who plays for Al-Wasl on from loan Grêmio as an attacking midfielder.

Club career[edit]

Born in Araçatuba, São Paulo, Lima joined Grêmio's youth setup in 2013, after starting it out at Tanabi. On 17 July 2015 he was loaned to Spanish Segunda División side RCD Mallorca, in a season-long deal.[1]

Initially assigned to the main squad, Lima was not registered by the Balearics' main squad,[2] and was only assigned to the reserves in Tercera División in January 2016.[3] He made his senior debut on 31 January of that year by starting in a 0–0 home draw against CE Constància, and scored his first goal on 13 February in a 2–0 home win against UD Alaró.

Lima subsequently returned to Grêmio (which refused a 1 million offer from Mallorca) in July 2016,[4] and was included in the first team by manager Roger Machado. He only made his first team debut on 2 March of the following year, starting in a 1–1 Primeira Liga home draw against Ceará.

Lima made his Série A debut on 28 May 2017, coming on as a second-half substitute for fellow youth graduate Careca in a 3–4 loss at Sport.[5]
