Argentina coach Santiago Phelan has named a 27-man squad for the upcoming home Tests against the All Blacks and Wallabies.

The squad has been bolstered by the inclusion of fit-again loose forward Álvaro Galindo while utility back Rafael Carballo and prop Maximiliano Bustos return to club duty in France.

Argentina, who will look to register their first Rugby Championship win on home soil, will be in training until Saturday before disbanding until next Monday.

The Pumas will play host to the All Blacks in La Plata when the Rugby Championship recommences next weekend before they conclude the inaugural tournament against Australia in Rosario a week later.

It will be New Zealand's first visit to Argentina since 2006.

Argentina squad: Horacio Agulla, Patricio Albacete, Marcos Iván Ayerza, Marcelo Bosch, Martín Bustos Moyano, Gonzalo Oscar Camacho, Manuel Carizza, Agustín Creevy, Julio Farias Cabello, Juan Martín Fernández Lobbe, Santiago Fernández, Juan Figallo, Álvaro Galindo, Lucas González Amorosino, Eusebio Guiñazú, Juan Martín Hernández, Juan José Imhoff, Martín Landajo, Juan Manuel Leguizamón, Tomás Leonardi, Juan Pablo Orlandi, Martín Rodríguez, Rodrigo Roncero, Federico Nicolás Sánchez, Leonardo Vicente Senatore, Tomás Vallejos, Nicolás Vergallo.
