The president of the Fluminense soccer team, Peter Siemsen, revealed on Wednesday the signing of three players in hopes of defending the club's Brazilian Championship title.

Alejandro Martinuccio, a 23-year-old Argentinean native, will arrive as a versatile player, able to play forward and midfielder. He recently played for Uruguay's Penarol, the runner-up to Brazil's Santos in the 2011 Libertadores Cup.

Martinuccio expressed his satisfaction with the deal, claiming that it was an improvement in his career. Fluminense considers the player a perfect substitute for Dario Conca who recently left the team to play in China.

Aside from Martinuccio, Fluminense also signed Manuel Lanzini, landing a loan from Argentina's River Plate for a period of two years.

The club also succeeded in having striker Rafael Sobis from Internacional.

The three players will receive their official presentation to the media and fans on July 21.
