The Brazilian media have spoke several times about Corinthians interest in signing Teo Gutierrez for next season. However, Popular now report that his contract could be a stumbling block, allowing Sevilla to swoop.
Gutierrez started his career with Barranquilla in Colombia in 2006, before playing for two years with their parent club Atletico Junior.
The striker has also played in Turkey with Trabzonspor, in Argentina with Racing Club and Lanus, and in the Liga MX with Cruz Azul.
In 2013 he moved to his current club River Plate. With River, Teo has won the Copa Sudamericana in 2014 and the Recopa Sudamericana in 2015.
River Plate’s next match in the Copa Libertadores is against Cruzeiro, with the Brazilians being the favourites to progress to the semi finals.
