CM: Napoli dealt blow as star striker likely will miss important Milan clash

By Isak Möller -

After the international break, Milan will be looking to get back to winning ways after a loss and a draw. They will take on third-place Napoli, who are currently three points behind in the standings. 

In other words, it will be a very important clash for both sides. As reported by Calciomercato.com, Napoli have been dealt a big blow as their star striker Victor Osimhen could miss the game due to an injury.

The 21-year-old, who arrived at Napoli for a fee of €70m this summer, sustained a shoulder injury while on international duty with Nigeria last night. A serious injury has been ruled out, but further tests are required to determine the extent.

Flights permitting, he will return to Naples by Sunday and will then be evaluated by the medical staff. At the moment, the player is considered in doubt for the match against Milan on Sunday, although it isn’t ruled out yet.
