Leonel Ríos (born 17 November 1983 in Buenos Aires) is an Argentine football midfielder who currently plays for Club Olimpo.

Ríos began his career at Independiente in 2001, in 2004 he moved to Spain to play for UD Almería but returned to Argentina shortly afterward to play for Arsenal de Sarandí. In 2006 he was signed by Italian Serie B side Genoa, who loaned him to Serie A club Reggina Calcio. However, Ríos failed to gain a place in the team and on January 31, 2007, he was signed by Rosario Central.

Ríos signed for Vélez Sársfield for the start of the 2007 08 season. He subsequently returned to Independiente for the Apertura 2008 tournament. In the summer of 2009 he went back to Europe this time for Asteras Tripolis on the Greek Super League.

He signed a six month contract with Kavala F.C. in 2011. After the 6 months, Kavala did not re-sign the player, making him a free agent.

Ríos returned to Argentina following his contract had expired and on 14 July 2011 joined Olimpo de Bahía Blanca on free transfer.

The highlight of Ríos' career so far was being part of the Independiente squad that won the Apertura tournament in 2002. He has also appeared over 200 times for "El Rojo".
