Club careerEdit

Alianza LimaEdit

Carrillo began his football career in the Lima-based youth system of Esther Grande de Bentín, in 2004.[3] Then in 2007 he joined Alianza Lima's youth setup.[3] Finally in 2009, he was moved up to Alianza Lima's first team and made his league debut in the Torneo Descentralizado on 5 December in the last round of the regular season.[3][4] Playing at home in the Matute Stadium, he entered the pitch in the 75th minute as match eventually finished in 2–2 draw against Universidad César Vallejo.[4]

Sporting CPEdit

On 6 May 2011 it was reported that Carrillo signed a five-year contract with Sporting CP.[5][6] He was quickly included in the first team and was an unused substitute for the league games in round 2 and 3. Then in matchday 5 and playing from the start, he made his Primeira Liga debut on 19 September 2011 in Sporting's 2–3 away win over Rio Ave FC.[7] He was in the starting line-up again in his second match and provided his first assist in his side's 3–0 win over Vitória Setúbal. Later he provided two assists in Sporting's 6–1 victory over Gil Vicente. Then in his eleventh match, he scored his first league goal in the 74th minute, but it was not enough to avoid a 2–1 away defeat to Braga.[8]

On 2 February 2016, Sporting informed that Carrillo had signed a contract with city rivals Benfica until 2021.[9]

Benfica and loansEdit

Carrillo officially joined Portuguese defending champions Benfica on 1 July for the 2016–17 season.[10] On 24 August 2017, he joined English side Watford on a season-long loan with the option for a permanent transfer.[11] For the 2018–19 season, he was loaned again, this time to Al-Hilal FC in Saudi Arabia.[12]

Al-HilalEdit

On 23 July 2019, Carrillo signed a four-year contract with Al-Hilal.[13][14]

International careerEdit

In March 2011, Carrillo was called up by Sergio Markarián for Peru's game against Ecuador in which he was an unused sub. In May 2011 he was called up to play in the Kirin Cup.[15] He scored his second international goal on 3 July 2015 in a 2–0 victory against Paraguay in the 2015 Copa América Third Place Match.

In May 2018, Carrillo was named in Peru's provisional 24-man squad for the FIFA World Cup in Russia.[16]
