Super Eagles forward Victor Osimhen is likely to be without Napoli teammate Lorenzo Insigne for three weeks, according to reports.
The 29-year-old Napoli captain picked up an injury during his sides 1-0 win over Real Sociedad in the Europa League on Thursday and was replaced in the first half.
“Lorenzo said he stopped in time and it wasn’t the same intensity of pain that he felt last time, so hopefully it’s not serious,” Napoli manager Gennaro Gattuso said after the game.
According to Il Mattino, Insigne could suffer a thigh strain which, if confirmed, could force him out of the pitch for two or three weeks.
Napoli will also be without Nigerian international Osimhen in their next Europa League match after he was show a red card against La Liga side Real Sociedad.
