Arnaldo Antonio Sanabria Ayala (born 4 March 1996), also known as Tonny Sanabria, is a Paraguayan footballer who plays for Italian side Sassuolo in Serie A, as a striker.

Club career[edit]

Born in San Lorenzo, Paraguay, Sanabria started his career in futsal, later moving to football. He joined Cerro Porteño's youth academy in 2004.[1] In 2007, he and his parents moved to Spain, and Sanabria joined a local club from Sitges, called La Blanca Subur CF.

Sanabria joined FC Barcelona's youth academy in 2009, aged 13.[2] A year later, he moved to La Masia's facilities.

In September 2012, Sanabria was called up by manager Tito Vilanova to train with first team.[3] In August 2013, he was promoted to FC Barcelona B.[4]

On 29 September, Sanabria made his professional debut, playing the last 22 minutes in a 0–1 home loss against RCD Mallorca.[5]

On 20 November, Sanabria rejected a contract extension from Barça.[6] Three days later he scored his first professional goal, but in a 1–2 home loss against UD Las Palmas.[7] Sanabria was linked to Roma and others which face fierce competition to sign him in January.[8]

A.S. Roma[edit]

On 14 December, English newspaper Metro reported that Sanabria agreed a move to Arsenal in January 2014.[9] However, after agreeing a deal with the Gunners, he signed with Roma on 8 January 2014, with the Italian side paying his release clause (3 million fee).[10]

U.S. Sassuolo[edit]

On 29 January Sanabria joined fellow Serie A side Sassuolo, for a €4.5 million fee, which could go to 12 million "dependent on the player’s performance and his future value".[11] It was also not detailed what role Roma will play in the negotiations, neither about a future transfer to Giallorossi.[12]

Sanabria made his first Serie A appearance, wearing the number 96, as a substitute in Sassuolo's 1-0 away defeat to Udinese on March 23 2014.

International career[edit]

After playing for both under-17 and under-20 levels, Sanabria made his full squad debut on 14 August 2013, in a 3–3 draw against Germany.[13]
