Ademola Lookman and Samuel Chukwueze are expected to return to Atalanta and Milan respectively on Wednesday, following Nigeria’s defeat by Côte d’Ivoire in Sunday’s Africa Cup of Nations final, but Victor Osimhen will be back later than his compatriots.

Osimhen, is expected back in Italy on Thursday, which is even a little earlier than reported by various media in Italy on Tuesday afternoon. According to reports in Il Corriere dello Sport and TuttoNapoli on Wednesday morning, Osimhen briefly returned to Lagos on Tuesday to clear his head after the disappointment of losing the CAN final and to take care of some personal business. His delayed return means he is unlikely to play in their Serie A match against Genoa on Saturday afternoon. Instead, Walter Mazzarri will be looking to bring him back into the squad for next Wednesday’s Champions League Round of 16 clash with Barcelona, according to Wednesday’s reports.
