Lucas Martín Valdemarín (born 13 May 1978 in Río Tercero, Argentina) is a footballer from Argentina who currently plays for Defensa y Justicia in the Primera B Nacional.

Valdemarín developed his career as a youth with Sportivo 9 de Julio. In 1996 he was signed by senior club Talleres de Córdoba, but shortly after Vélez Sársfield acquired his playing rights. During his period at Vélez Lucas struggled to earned a spot in the first team, and the club had no choice but to loaned him a few times. Valdemarín went to defend the colors of Independiente Rivadavia and Racing Club in Argentina, Unión Española of Chile and Elche CF from Spain, making two more spells with Vélez in between.

In 2006 he became a free agent and signed for Arsenal de Sarandí, where he arguably had the best season of his career, forming an impressive striker partnership with Iván Obolo. The following year, both relocated to Sweden to play for AIK Fotboll. In 2008 Valdemarín reached a mutual agreement with AIK and the contract was terminated, then he returned to Argentina and joined Colón de Santa Fe. He was a starter at the beginning, but his lack of effectivity eventually condemned him to the bench. During the first semester of 2009, he had a brief spell in Mexico with San Luis F.C. Back in Colón he couldn't secure a place in the squad, and transferred to Defensa y Justicia in July 2009.
