Alfaro started his professional career with Montevideo club Liverpool at the age of 18, becoming a first-team regular at a young age. After slowly developing as a footballer, Alfaro became a regular scorer for Liverpool. His best period at the club was the 2009-10 Apertura tournament, when he scored 13 times in 15 league matches.
His excellent performances led him to be transferred on loan to the well known Argentine club San Lorenzo de Almagro. His time in Argentina was not particularly successful, as he only managed to score twice for San Lorenzo.
Alfaro returned to Liverpool, where he again became a regular goalscorer. His performances were strong enough to draw the attention of Óscar Tabárez, coach of the Uruguayan national team, for whom Alfaro made his debut.
His form also saw him attract interest from Europe, and on January 12, 2012, Alfaro moved to Italian Serie A club Lazio for a fee of 3 million euro. He chose the number 30 shirt, never before worn at Lazio.
