Lanus have completed the signing of Argentine forward Gonzalo Castillejos from Rosario Central for a fee of $2 million. Castillejos, 23, has put pen to paper a three year contract with Lanus.
Castillejos, 23, made his debut for Rosario Central in August 2007. It took him another two years to score his first goal for the club, which came in September 2009 against River Plate.
Castillejos made nineteen appearances for Rosario Central in the 2009 Apertura, two of which were from the bench. He scored four goals for Los Canallas.
Rosario finished 10th in the 2009 Apertura. Lanus ended up on the same number of points as Rosario, but took ninth place due to their superior goal difference. Lanus also competed in the 2009 Copa Libertadores, where they were eliminated at the second stage.
