Giovanni Aparecido Adriano dos Santos, known as Giovanni or Giovanni Santos (born 5 February 1987), is a Brazilian footballer who plays for Atlético Mineiro as a goalkeeper.
Giovanni started in the youth ranks of Marília and became the first team's goalkeeper in 2008. He was loaned to Ponte Preta in 2009, where he played in the Série B. In the following year he was loaned again, this time to Grêmio Prudente in the Série A.
In 2011 Giovanni was signed by Atlético Mineiro, where he at first served as backup for Renan Ribeiro, but eventually made it into the first squad. He was Atlético's first-choice goalkeeper in the 2012 Campeonato Mineiro, won by the club, but returned to the bench after the arrival of Victor later in the same year.
