Diego Fernando Latorre (born August 4, 1969 in Buenos Aires) is a former Argentine football striker.

Latorre was one of the first Argentine players to be labelled as the "New Maradona". He made his professional debut for Boca Juniors on October 18, 1987 against Platense scoring his first goal at the same match. He won the 1991 Argentine league with Boca Juniors. His good performance took him to play with the Argentina national football team scoring his first goal in a Friendly match against Brazil.

In 1992, he joined Fiorentina with Gabriel Batistuta after the pair helped Argentina to win the Copa America in 1991. While Batistuta eventually became one of Fiorentina's all-time greats, Latorre only made 2 appearance with the club and quickly left for CD Tenerife in La Liga. He made 67 appearances 15 goals with the Spanish club. He moved to UD Salamanca in 1995, but only spent a single season there. He returned to Boca Juniors in 1996. He also played for Racing Club de Avellaneda and Rosario Central after returning from Europe. He later played in Mexico and Guatemala before retiring in 2005.
