Goncalo Cardoso arrived at West Ham at the age of just 18, having been touted as one of the continent's brightest young stars.
The central defender - who can also operate at full back - made his first team debut for former club Boavista during the 2018/19 season and was signed by West Ham with the first team squad very much in mind, despite his young age.
Cardoso was granted the number 20 shirt upon his arrival in England, two days ahead of the end of the 2019 summer transfer window. He was Manuel Pellegrini's fifth summer signing.
