Tobias Pereira Figueiredo (born 2 February 1994) is a Portuguese footballer who plays for English club Nottingham Forest as a central defender.
Born in Sátão, Viseu District, Figueiredo joined Sporting Clube de Portugal's youth setup in 2006 at the age of 12, after starting out at SC Penalva do Castelo. He was promoted to the reserves in the summer of 2012, and made his professional debut on 11 August by starting in a 0–1 away loss against U.D. Oliveirense for the Segunda Liga championship.
On 29 January 2014, Figueiredo was loaned to Spanish club CF Reus Deportiu until June, alongside Sporting teammate Alexandre Guedes. An undisputed starter during his tenure, he returned to the Lions in June 2014 and was promoted to the main squad in January of the following year.
Figueiredo made his Primeira Liga debut on 18 January 2015, playing the full 90 minutes in a 4–2 home win against Rio Ave FC. He scored his first goal in the competition on 1 February, netting the last in a 3–1 success at F.C. Arouca. Roughly one month later, he added another in the first leg of the semi-finals of the Taça de Portugal against C.D. Nacional, as the latter tournament was eventually won with him as an unused substitute.
On 30 April 2015, Figueiredo extended his contract with Sporting until 2021. On 28 June of the following year, deemed surplus to requirements by manager Jorge Jesus, he was loaned to fellow league club Nacional; he scored his only goal in a 1–3 home loss to S.L. Benfica, as the season ended in relegation as last.
On 30 January 2018, completely ostracized by manager Jorge Jesus, Figueiredo signed on loan with English Championship side Nottingham Forest until the end of the campaign. He made his debut on 17 February, playing the entire 0–0 away draw against Burton Albion.
On 20 April 2018, it was announced that Figueiredo would join Nottingham Forest on a permanent deal on 1 July.
Figueiredo participated in two UEFA European Under-21 Championship editions with Portugal, playing twice in 2015 for the runners-up. He won his first cap at that level on 13 November 2014, in a 1–3 friendly defeat to England at Turf Moor.
Figueiredo was also picked by manager Rui Jorge for his squad that appeared at the 2016 Summer Olympics. He featured in all the matches in Rio de Janeiro, in an eventual quarter-final exit.
Figueiredo's older brother, Cristiano, was also a footballer. He played his youth football with S.C. Braga.
