Victor Osihmen set for a possible return to action after the International break

Nigerian and Napoli star Victor Osimhen could see himself on the pitch for the Champions League match against Ajax after a short spell out on injury.

Super Eagles and Napoli striker Victor Osimhen is set and ready to return to action with Napoli after the international break. 

Osihmen, who has been out of action since the game against Liverpool, came off for Giovanni Simeone in the 41st minute of the game after losing a penalty earlier in the game. He has since been sidelined with a return from injury set for Oct 1st just after the international break.

Following the game, it was revealed that Osimhen had suffered a hamstring injury ruling him out of Nigeria’s squad for the international friendly clash against Algeria at the Oran Olympic Stadium on September 27. 

According to Tutto Napoli, Osimhen could feature in Napoli’s Champions League clash against Ajax at Amsterdam Arena on October 4 in the Champions League and coulod possibly begin from the first minute on 9 October at Cremonese.

His return certainly comes as a timely boost for Luciano Spalletti’s men as they look to make it three wins out of three in their Champions League games this season.

Before his injury, Osimhen had scored two league goals and assisted another for the Neapolitans in five league games. Napoli have done well in his absence, though. Spalletti’s men defeated Rangers in their Champions League encounter while they edged out Spezia 1-0 in the league.

The Neapolitans also defeated title rivals AC Milan 2-1 on Sunday to go top of the Italian Serie A table. Nonetheless, they will be eager to have their star man back after the international break.
