Napoli chief Cristiano Giuntoli says the club is not expecting Victor Osimhen to return to action again this year.
Osimhen has been out since he dislocated his shoulder while on international assignment with Nigeria in November.
The 21-year-old striker has missed all Napoli’s games in the process and Giuntoli has now revealed he won’t be back on the pitch till January.
“Osimhen is still not well, we are waiting for him at the beginning of 2021,” Guintoli told sosfanta .calciomercato .com.
”We are waiting for him at the beginning of January, I don’t know when he will come back, we will see in what conditions it will be and we will evaluate ”. He said.
The former Lille forward reportedly traveled to Belgium last week to continue his rehabilitation.
Osimhen joined Napoli in July and has scored twice in eight league outings for Gennaro Gattuso’s men.
