Lucas Martín Valdemarín (born 13 May 1978 in Río Tercero, Argentina) is a former footballer from Argentina who played for Vélez, Unión Española (Chile), Elche (Spain), AIK (Sweden) and Club San Luis (Mexico).


Valdemarín developed his career as a youth with Sportivo 9 de Julio. In 1996, he was signed by Talleres de Córdoba, but shortly after Vélez Sársfield acquired his playing rights. During his period at Vélez Valdemarín struggled to earn a spot in the first team, and the club loaned him to other teams multiple times: to Independiente Rivadavia and Racing Club in Argentina, Unión Española of Chile and Elche CF from Spain, with two more spells with Vélez in between.

In 2006, he became a free agent and signed for Arsenal de Sarandí, where he formed a striker partnership with Mauro Óbolo. The following year, both relocated to Sweden to play for AIK Fotboll. In 2008 Valdemarín reached a mutual agreement with AIK to terminate his the contract, and joined Colón de Santa Fe. He was a starter at the beginning, but his due to his lack of effectivity he was relegated to the bench.[1] During the first semester of 2009, he had a brief spell in Mexico with San Luis F.C. [2] Back in Colón he couldn't secure a place in the squad, and transferred to Defensa y Justicia in July 2009.[3] In June 2010 ends his career.
