Osimhen doubtful for Napoli vs Bologna

Napoli’s forward, Victor Osimhen, finds himself in a precarious situation ahead of Sunday’s highly anticipated Serie A encounter against Inter Milan, the formidable frontrunners of the league. Osimhen’s involvement hangs in the balance after he suffered a muscle injury during Napoli’s recent UEFA Champions League bout against Barcelona, casting a shadow over his participation in the upcoming clash.

In response to the injury, the 25-year-old underwent separate training sessions from the team on Friday, indicating the seriousness of the setback. The Nigerian international’s absence would undoubtedly be felt by Napoli, as Osimhen has proven to be a pivotal figure in their attacking lineup, showcasing his prowess with 13 goals from 24 appearances across various competitions this season.

As Napoli gears up for a crucial showdown against Inter Milan, Osimhen’s potential absence could pose a significant challenge for the team, particularly against a formidable opponent like Inter. His dynamic playing style and goal-scoring ability have been instrumental in Napoli’s campaign thus far, making his presence on the pitch crucial for their success.

Currently positioned seventh in the Serie A standings, Napoli is striving to close the gap on the top-four spots, with fourth-placed Bologna holding a seven-point advantage. Osimhen’s contribution could prove decisive in Napoli’s quest to climb the table and secure a coveted Champions League spot.

Despite the uncertainty surrounding his immediate availability, Osimhen’s long-term commitment to Napoli has been solidified with a contract extension until 2026. However, his new deal with the Partenopei includes a notable €130 million release clause, highlighting his importance to the club and attracting attention from potential suitors.


As Napoli navigates through the challenges of the Serie A season, Osimhen’s fitness and form will remain a focal point for both the team and their supporters, with hopes of a swift recovery and a triumphant return to action.
