Lyanco Vojnović is a product of Botafogo youth academy. In 2015, he joined São Paulo, despite interest from Cruzeiro, Palmeiras, Fluminense and also from Milan, which was cancelled due to a lack of European passport. He made his professional debut on 2 July 2015, coming on as a second-half substitute for Bruno in a 2–1 away defeat against Atlético Paranaense. Two months later, on 3 September, he made his first league start against Joinville.
