Newcastle could lose Gutierrez as Lazio line up move

Newcastle face a battle to hold to Jonas Gutierrez with Lazio preparing a big-money summer bid for the Argentine winger.
Gutierrez, 27, has two years left on his current deal at St James' Park but has so far stalled on signing a new contract.
And reports in his native Argentina have revealed that Lazio plan to meet with Newcastle officials to discuss a potential summer move to Serie A.
Newcastle know that the midfielder's value will diminish if he does not sign a new deal soon so they could be tempted to cash in on him this summer.
But they face a dilemma because he has been almost ever-present for the side this season.
But £8m-rated Gutierrez is remaining tight-lipped on the subject.
"Rumours are rumours," he said. "Now I'm just focused on my work in Newcastle."
