NAPOLI FORWARD OSIMHEN TO UNDERGO SURGERY AFTER SUFFERING FRACTURED EYE SOCKET

Napoli FC has revealed that Victor Osimhen has been diagnosed with a fractured eye socket and cheekbone and will undergo surgery in Milan after a clash of heads with Inter defender Milan Skriniar.

Following the clash of heads, Osimhen was visibly swollen around the left eye and cheekbone, and was able to walk off the pitch, although clearly dazed.

He was immediately taken to the San Raffaele Hospital for tests, which showed multiple displaced fractures of the left cheekbone and orbital bone.

Initial reports suggest that Osimhen could be out of action for at least a month and it is devastating news, especially as Osimhen is also set to leave Napoli in January to play for Nigeria in the Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

Nevertheless, Osimhen is their top scorer this season with five Serie A goals and four in the Europa League.
