Aureliano Torres Román (born in Luque on 16 June 1982) is a Paraguayan footballer who plays for Club Atletico Peñarol in Uruguay.
In 2007 Torres joined San Lorenzo and in his debut season the club won the Clausura tournament. In spite of that, he has not had a good relationship with the supporters, due to his lukewarm performances.
He scored two goals with Paraguay, the second against Côte d'Ivoire on 30 May 2010.
