League summary (as for 11 March 2022):

No senior team appearances yet.


In 2019, Valentin Carboni moved from the great Argentinian academy of Lanús to Catania Calcio – the former club of his father Ezequiel. After just one year he was signed by Inter along with his brother Franco. Valentin was one of the leaders of the Italy U-17 national team but in March 2022, Lionel Scaloni has surprisingly included Franco and Valentin in the Argentina preliminary squad.
