Napoli’s Nigerian striker, Victor Osimhen, has suffered a right thigh injury while on international duty, confirmed the reigning Italian champions on Monday. The club disclosed that Osimhen’s examinations revealed a medium-type lesion in the biceps femoris of his right thigh and that he has commenced rehabilitation at the club’s training center.

According to reports from Corriere delle Sport, Osimhen could be sidelined for approximately a month, causing him to miss Napoli’s upcoming four league matches and two Champions League fixtures until the next international break in mid-November.
