RIO DE JANEIRO, Jan. 12 (Xinhua) -- Former Argentine international striker Mauro Boselli has joined Paraguay's Cerro Porteno as a free agent, the Asuncion-based club said on Tuesday.

The 35-year-old completed a medical and agreed to a deal that will reportedly expire in December, less than two weeks after parting ways with Brazil's Corinthians.

Cerro Porteno confirmed the move in a short video posted on social media accompanied by the words, "Welcome to the neighborhood, Mauro."

Boselli struggled with injuries after arriving at Corinthians in January 2019, scoring just 17 goals in 72 matches across all competitions for the Sao Paulo club.

Capped four times for Argentina's national team, Boselli began his career at Boca Juniors and has also had spells at Malaga, Estudiantes, Wigan Athletic, Genoa, Palermo, and Mexico's Leon. Enditem
