Gonzalo originally joined London Irish on a trial basis in February 2006 and went on to make an impressive impact for the club in the Guinness premiership and European Challenge Cup playing in nine games and scoring four tries before the end of the 2005-06 season. A number of hamstring injuries restricted his appearances last season to just seven.
The 22-year-old previously played for the famous San Isidro Club, just north of Buenos Aires.
Gonzalo is an exciting player who brings skill, pace and courage to his role in midfield. He has already made eight international appearances at centre for Argentina and has been included in squad for the Rugby World Cup in France.
