LA PAZ, Dec. 24 (Xinhua) -- Mexico's Club Puebla have signed Bolivia international midfielder Alejandro Chumacero for the 2018 season, the Liga MX side said on Sunday.

The 26-year-old, who will join the club from Bolivian outfit The Strongest, will meet up with his new teammates in January following a medical.
