Napoli star forward Osimhen suffers hamstring injury


Napoli’s Nigeria striker Victor Osimhen suffered a hamstring injury on international duty, the Italian club said on Monday.

The 24-year-old came off injured around the hour mark in Nigeria’s 2-2 friendly draw with Saudi Arabia on Friday.

Napoli did not specify a timeframe for Osimhen’s return.

Osimhen is likely to miss several matches, including Napoli’s visit to Hellas Verona on Saturday, the Champions League group game at Union Berlin on October 24 and the clash with Serie A leaders AC Milan five days later.

Napoli are fifth in Serie A, with Osimhen having top-scored for the club with six goals in the league this season.
