Liverpool Montevideo and loan to San Lorenzo
Alfaro started his professional career with Montevideo club Liverpool at the age of 18, becoming a first-team regular at a young age. After slowly developing as a footballer, Alfaro became a regular scorer for Liverpool. His best period at the club was the 2009–10 Apertura tournament, when he scored 13 times in 15 league matches.
His excellent performances led him to be transferred on loan to the well known Argentine club San Lorenzo de Almagro. His time in Argentina was not particularly successful, as he only managed to score twice for San Lorenzo.
Alfaro returned to Liverpool, where he again became a regular goalscorer. His performances were strong enough to draw the attention of Óscar Tabárez, coach of the Uruguay national team, for whom Alfaro made his debut.
His form also saw him attract interest from Europe, and on January 12, 2012, Alfaro moved to Italian Serie A club Lazio for a fee of 3 million euro. He chose the number 30 shirt, never before worn at Lazio. He made his debut on 19 February in the 5–1 away defeat, against Palermo. He ended the season by making 8 appearances in total without scoring any goal.
On September 12, 2012 Alfaro was loaned to Al Wasl in the United Arab Emirates, with option to purchase value set at 3.5 million. He made his debut on September 18 in the UAE President's Cup, scoring two goals against Al-Ittihad Kalba SC. On September 23, 2012 he made his debut in the league, to mark the victory, 4–1, against Al-Wahda where he also scored a hat trick. After 33 appearances and 24 goals in total, he returned to Lazio.
Back to Liverpool
After spending the entire season of 2013–2014 in bench, on August 28, 2014 was loaned to his old club Liverpool Montevideo, the team that launched him in professional football. On 13 September he played first game of season against the Torque in which he also scored a goal, with the game ending 3–0 to Liverpool. In the next game against Central Español on 27 September, he scored a brace that allowed his team to win the game 3���1. On May 2, 2015, with a 2–1 victory against Cerro Largo, Liverpool earned the promotion to the Uruguayan Primera División. On the May 23 with the closing of the season, he became the top scorer of the championship with a total of 21 goals scored in 27 games played.
At the end of the loan period Alfaro went back to Lazio, but at the end of the summer transfer market summer he was sold to Thailand champions Buriram United. Due to injuries sustained in pre-season he never played for Buriram United, and finally his contract was mutually terminated.
On 1 September 2016, Alfaro signed with Indian Super League franchise NorthEast United FC. On 5 October, he scored both the goals in a match against FC Goa, in which NorthEast United emerged victorious with 2–0 scoreline. He scored the first goal in the 20 minute, taking advantage of a failure of Goa goalkeeper Laxmikant Kattimani to clear a backpass by Lúcio. He scored the second goal in the 63rd minute from a Holicharan Narzary assist. Although he netted five times in his first seven matches, his form dipped since then as he failed to score any more goals in the remaining six matches.
After a stint with Emirati second tier club Al-Fujairah where he scored eight goals in 12 matches, Alfaro returned to the Indian Super League on 10 July 2017 and signed with FC Pune City; becoming the club's first foreign signing of the season. On 23 November, he made his debut in a 2–3 loss against Delhi Dynamos FC, scoring a goal in the 67th minute. Seven days later, he scored a brace against Mumbai City FC, which included the winning goal in the dying minute of the 2–1 victory.
