Aureliano Torres Román (born in Luque on 16 June 1982) is a Paraguayan footballer who plays for Club Sol de América in the Paraguayan Primera División. At club level, Torres achieved the 2002 Emperor's Cup in Japan, the Torneo Clausura of the 2006–07 Argentine Primera División and the 2012–13 Uruguayan Primera División of Uruguay, and with Paraguay he achieved the Silver Medal at the 2004 Summer Olympics Men's tournament and runners-up of the 2011 Copa América.

Club career[edit]

In 2007 Torres joined San Lorenzo and in his debut season the club won the Clausura tournament. In spite of that, he has not had a good relationship with the supporters, due to his lukewarm performances.

Torres debuted for Sol de América in a 2–2 home draw against Club Rubio Ñú on 16 February 2014.[1] He scored his first goal for Sol de América in a 2–1 home loss against Club Olimpia on 24 August 2014.[2]
