Josimar was at Barcelona for a number of years before signing for Chelsea in July 2014. In his younger days he played right-back but is now predominantly an attacking midfield player who can go box-to-box or play wide and is a good runner with the ball.
He made his first appearances for the club in the 2015/16 season, featuring on three occasions in our successful UEFA Youth League campaign. The youngster opened his goalscoring account in a 3-3 draw away at Porto in September 2015, while also playing regularly for Adi Viveash's Under-21 side.
Quintero signed a first professional contract in the summer of 2014, committing himself to the club until the end of the 2016/17 season.
In 2016/17, he was a regular in our development squad side, making 20 appearances. His five goals made him that team's second highest scorer.
At the start of July 2017, Quintero signed a new contract to 2019 and moved on loan to the Russian top flight with Rostov.
