San Lorenzo Complete Signing Of Universitario's Giancarlo Carmona

Universitario's Giancarlo Carmona is San Lorenzo's first signing of the transfer window, after the Peruvian today finalised a $500k move...
Ramon Diaz's San Lorenzo side have announced their first signing of the close-season, with Universitario midfielder Giancarlo Carmona in Buenos Aires completing a medical ahead of signing for the Argentine giants.

Ole reports that 25-year-old Peruvian Carmona, who is most comfortable at right wing back or midfield, has completed his medical and will now sign with San Lorenzo, moving for a fee of $500,000.

Speaking to the newspaper following the tests, Carmona asserted that he was happy to have joined 'El Pelado's' squad and gave fans a little taste of what to expect.

"I am a strong, quick player," said Carmona, who played two years in Lima with Universitario.

"As far as I understand [Diaz] watched videos of me and was interested, that's what I have been told."

Carmona started his career in Alianza Atletico before moving to Lima, where he helped the club win the 2009 league championship and finish runners up in the 2010 campaign.

He is known as an accomplished passer of the ball with impressive stamina reserves, and at 6'3 should have no problem adjusting to the increased physicality of Argentine football.
