Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen will undergo surgery in Naples on Tuesday after being the victim of several « displaced fractures“In the face Sunday during an air shock with a defender of Inter Milan, announced Monday night the Neapolitan club.

The former Lille striker, who stayed one night under observation in a Milan hospital after the match at San Siro (2-3), « will return to Naples in the eveningMonday, said Napoli on its site.

« He will remain under observation and will be operated on tomorrow (Tuesday)« , he added.

Osimhen, 22, suffers from « multiple displaced fractures of the eye socket and left cheekbone», According to his club.

No deadline has been communicated for his return to the field but the Italian press announces an absence of at least one month, which would make him unavailable until the end of 2021 with Naples, currently leading the Italian Championship.

The Nigerian international (19 caps, 10 goals) must then participate in the African Cup of Nations (January 9-February 6) in Cameroon and will therefore probably not find his club until early February.

Osimhen was out in the 55th minute of the match against Inter (2-3) on Sunday after a big aerial shock with Milan defender Milan Skriniar.
