With just a few days to go before the start of the new Serie A season, Napoli are not sure they can count on their Nigerian striker. The former Lille man was forced to leave the club’s training session today with a sprained ankle.

Victor Osimhen, who was rested during the last friendly match with Napoli due to muscle fatigue, is still not ready to return to action. After a few sessions in the gym, the Capocaoniere returned to collective training with his team today. But his session was soon cut short. The 24-year-old quickly left the pitch. This was due to a sprained ankle. For the time being, the Azzurri have not yet announced how long he will be unavailable. However, there is every reason to believe that he could miss the first Serie A match of the season.
