Report: Former Newcastle midfielder Jonas Gutierrez wanted by two Argentine clubs

Jonas Gutierrez

Former Newcastle United midfielder Jonas Gutierrez is reportedly being targeted by Velez Sarsfield and Independiente.

Velez Sarsfield and Independiente are both interested in signing Jonas Gutierrez this summer, according to Ole.

It has been reported by the Argentine publication that both the Argentine clubs want to recruit the former Newcastle United midfielder on a free transfer.

Good move for Jonas Gutierrez?

Gutierrez is currently a free agent after being released by Premier League outfit Newcastle at the end of the recently concluded 2014-15 campaign.

This means that Velez or Independiente will not have to pay any transfer fee for the 31-year-old midfielder.

The Argentine has not played much football for the past few years, and it is unlikely that he will be offered a contract by any Premier League club.

However, Gutierrez can still continue to play professional football, and perhaps it is best that he returns to his homeland and joins an Argentine club.

Gutierrez actually started his professional career at Velez, and it would be fitting if he ends his career there.
