Victor Osimhen is still under pain since dislocating his shoulder during the second half of Nigeria’s 4-4 draw with Sierra Leone at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium around one month ago and may be out of action till the end of this year.
The Napoli striker has been undergoing rehabilitation and the probability of Osimhen making his comeback against Torino on December 23 is close to zero.
The former Lille star confirmed that he will not be able to make his return this year as the pain persists.
Furthermore, a fresh test has confirmed that there is still some neuromotor problem preventing the Nigerian striker from making a return to action this calendar year.
Napoli’s record signing is expected to be omitted from the matchday squads in upcoming Serie A matches with Sampdoria, Inter Milan, Lazio and Torino.
Meanwhile, Napoli manager Gennaro Gattuso is hoping to have Osimhen ready for the first game of 2021 against Cagliari on January 3.
