Nano was born in San Cristóbal de La Laguna, Canary Islands, and joined CD Tenerife's youth setup in 2006 at the age of 11. He made his senior debuts with the reserves in the 2012–13 season, while still a junior, in Tercera División.

On 30 December 2013 Nano was promoted to the main squad in Segunda División. On 18 January of the following year he played his first match as a professional, coming on as a second-half substitute in a 0–4 home loss against AD Alcorcón.

On 15 August 2014 Nano was loaned to CE L'Hospitalet in Segunda División B. On 20 August of the following year he was definitely promoted to the Blanquiazules' main squad, signing a new contract until 2018.

Nano scored his first professional goal on 23 August 2015, netting his team's third in a 3–6 away loss against CD Numancia. On 21 February of the following year, he scored a brace in a 3–1 home win against UE Llagostera; he added another seven days later, in a 2–1 success at CD Mirandés.

Nano remained with his goalscoring form later on, scoring a double in a 2–2 draw at Deportivo Alavés in April, and another in a 3–1 home win against Real Valladolid in May. He finished the campaign with 14 goals, being the club's top goalscorer and the eighth overall.

On 27 August 2016, SD Eibar reached an agreement with Tenerife for the transfer of Nano, for a fee of €3.250 million. Two days later, he signed a five-year deal with the La Liga club.
