Joaquín Arzura (born 18 May 1993) is an Argentine footballer who plays for Uruguayan club Nacional on loan from River Plate as a defensive midfielder.

Club career[edit]

Arzura was a part of Tigre's youth academy until 2013, but made his senior debut in Copa Argentina on 29 November 2011. He came on as a substitute in the second half, and played a role when Tigre scored two late winning goals against Defensa y Justicia to make it 4–2.[1]

His league debut came on 31 August 2013, in the 2013-14-season of Primera División, against Quilmes. He played in total 31 league games that season, making him an important player in Tigre's midfield.

On 4 January 2016, Arzura signed a 3.5 year long contract with current Copa Libertadores champions River Plate.[2] On 28 July of the following year, after being sparingly used, he was loaned to Segunda División club CA Osasuna for one year.[3]

On 16 July 2018, Arzura was loaned to UD Almería for one season.[4] The following 23 January, his loan was cancelled and he moved to Nacional also in a temporary deal.[5]
