Gino Peruzzi Lucchetti (Spanish pronunciation: [peˈruθi], locally: [peˈrusi]; born 9 June 1992) is an Argentine footballer who plays as a right back for Boca Juniors in the Argentine First Division.

Club career[edit]

Vélez Sársfield[edit]

Peruzzi started his professional career playing for Vélez Sársfield, making his debut on 27 November 2011, starting in a 1–1 draw with Colón, in the 2011 Apertura.[1] Although he played his first game as a right winger, Peruzzi has since primarily been deployed as a right full back.

Peruzzi gained recognition after his performances against Santos in the home and away legs of the quarter-finals of the 2012 Copa Libertadores, in which Peruzzi marked and annulled Neymar, despite the fact that his team was eliminated in the penalty shootout.[2][3]

Although he was mainly a substitute for club captain Fabián Cubero, Peruzzi played 13 games (scoring once) in Vélez' 2012 Inicial winning championship, playing either as right back or right winger.[4] He also helped Vélez win the 2012–13 Superfinal, entering the field during the first half after Cubero was sent off.

Calcio Catania[edit]

On 13 August 2013, Calcio Catania officially announced the signing of Peruzzi ahead of the 2013-14 Serie A season.[5] The transfer was reported to be worth 3.4 million euros, plus 700k euros in added taxes. Vélez will also reportedly receive 15% of any future resale of the player.[6]

Peruzzi made his debut for the club on 1 December 2013, in a home defeat against A.C. Milan. In his first season with Catania, the club was relegated to Serie B.

Boca Juniors[edit]

In 2015, Peruzzi signed with Argentinian club Boca Juniors.
