Samir Caetano de Souza Santos (born 5 December 1994 in Rio de Janeiro), also known as Samir, is a Brazilian footballer who plays for Udinese as a centre back.

Club career
Samir began his career with Brazilian side Flamengo, making his Série A debut with the club's first team in 2013; he won the 2013 Copa do Brasil and the 2014 Campeonato Carioca with the club.

On 18 January 2016, he joined Italian club Udinese for €4.5 million, but was immediately loaned out to Verona for the remainder of the 2015–16 Serie A season.

On 4 April 2016, he made his Serie A debut, scoring the decisive goal in a 1–0 away win against Bologna from a header.

International career
Samir was included in the Brazilian under-20 side for the 2013 South American Youth Football Championship. He has also represented Brazil at under-21 level.

Style of play
Samir is a large, quick, and physically powerful left-footed defender, who is known for his confidence, solid distribution, ability to read the game, and strength in the air, which makes him a goal threat on set-pieces in the opposition's area. Although primarily a centre-back, he is also capable of playing as a left-back or as a defensive midfielder.
