André Martín Carrillo Díaz (born 14 June 1991) is a Peruvian professional footballer who plays primarily as a winger or a second striker for Saudi Arabian club Al-Hilal, on loan from Benfica, and the Peru national team.
Carrillo began his senior career in 2009 with Alianza Lima. Two years later, he moved to Sporting CP in Portugal and debuted for his country. In 2016, he joined the former's local rivals Benfica and went on to win the league, cup and super cup in his first season. He was then loaned out to English club Watford in the Premier League for the 2017–18 season.
Carrillo began his football career in the Lima-based youth system of Esther Grande de Bentín, in 2004. Then in 2007 he joined Alianza Lima's youth setup. Finally in 2009, he was moved up to Alianza Lima's first team and made his league debut in the Torneo Descentralizado on 5 December in the last round of the regular season. Playing at home in the Matute Stadium, he entered the pitch in the 75th minute as match eventually finished in 2–2 draw against Universidad César Vallejo.
On 6 May 2011 it was reported that Carrillo signed a five-year contract with Sporting CP. He was quickly included in the first team and was an unused substitute for the league games in round 2 and 3. Then in matchday 5 and playing from the start, he made his Primeira Liga debut on 19 September 2011 in Sporting's 2–3 away win over Rio Ave FC. He was in the starting line-up again in his second match and provided his first assist in his side's 3–0 win over Vitória Setúbal. Later he provided two assists in Sporting's 6–1 victory over Gil Vicente. Then in his eleventh match, he scored his first league goal in the 74th minute, but it was not enough to avoid a 2–1 away defeat to Braga.
Benfica and loans
Carrillo officially joined Portuguese defending champions Benfica on 1 July for the 2016–17 season. On 24 August 2017, he joined English side Watford on a season-long loan with the option for a permanent transfer. For the 2018–19 season, he was loaned again, this time to Al-Hilal FC in Saudi Arabia.
In March 2011, Carrillo was called up by Sergio Markarián for Peru's game against Ecuador in which he was an unused sub. In May 2011 he was called up to play in the Kirin Cup. He scored his second international goal on 3 July 2015 in a 2–0 victory against Paraguay in the 2015 Copa América Third Place Match.
