Club career[edit]


Carbonero began his career in the Categoría Primera B with Academia before signing for first division team Atletico Huila.

In January 2011, it was confirmed that Carbonero would join Once Caldas.


Eventually, he signed for Estudiantes in 2011. He would only make 10 league appearances before going on loan to Arsenal de Sarandí. He scored his first goal for Arsenal in the 2012 edition of the Copa Libertadores in 3–0 win against Zamora. He netted a goal in the 2012 Tornero Clausura against San Martín in an away game that ended 4-1 in favour of Arsenal. At the end of season Arsenal won the 2012 Tornero Clausura, its first league title in history. In the 2012 Supercopa Argentina, Carbonero failed to score in the penalty shoot-out against Boca Juniors but despite this, Arsenal were still able to beat Boca 4–3 thus claiming the title.

On 4 June 2013, it was confirmed that Carbonero would go on loan once more, this time to play for Argentine River Plate.[citation needed]


On 27 August 2015, Carbonero joined Sampdoria on loan with the option of a permanent move given to the club.[1]

On 31 August 2016, Sampdoria loaned him for a second time.[2]
