1. Kluiverth Aguilar
He is, without a doubt, the best-known Peruvian who is active abroad. Kluiverth Aguilar, who made his professional debut at Alianza Lima when he was just 16 years old, left the blue and white institution in mid-2021 to continue his career at Lommel SK of the Second Division of Belgium, a club that belongs to City Football Group Limited (CFG), a business group that acquired the services of the Peruvian for 2.5 million dollars.
With the Belgian team, Aguilar was only able to play five games in the 2021/22 season and then arrived in Peru to train at Videna. He was part of Gustavo Roverano's last microcycle, and even acted as a sparring partner for the senior team days before the playoff.

Alexander Robertson plays for Manchester City U23, a team with which he has played eight games in the last season, having registered one assist. It is important to mention that the 'citizens' academy player has previously represented the England U-17s and, in addition to Peru, he can also play for Australia, the native of his father Mark Robertson (former soccer player) and Scotland, where he was born. /p>
“The boy is a great player. He has a top formation, he is a great midfielder who has very good projection. He's in our radio”, Roverano said about Robertson in early June in an interview with 'Charla Técnica'.
“He can play all over the front of the midfield, as a central midfielder, a little further inside or a little more on the wings. It is what has been seen in his matches at Manchester City. He is a very versatile, intelligent and tactically organized player”, adds Gonzalo Santiago Landacay.
