José Salomón (born 9 July 1916 in La Plata) is a retired Argentine football defender who played club football for Talleres de Remedios de Escalada and Racing Club de Avellaneda and captained the Argentina national football team.

Salomón started his career in 1934 with Talleres before moving to Avelaneda to play for Racing Club between 1939 and 1945.

Salomón played a total of 44 games for Argentina including 21 in the Copa América a national record he shares with Oscar Ruggeri.
