Napoli sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli has ruled out the possibility of Victor Osimhen returning to action for the club this year, reports Completesports.com.
Osimhen dislocated his shoulder while on international duty with Nigeria last month and has not played for the Blues since then.
“Osimhen is still not well, we are waiting for him at the beginning of 2021,” Guintoli told sosfanta.calciomercato.com.
”We are waiting for him at the beginning of January, I don’t know when he will come back, we will see in what conditions it will be and we will evaluate ”.
The 21-year-old travelled to Belgium last week to continue his rehabilitation.
He teamed up with Belgium national team physio Lieven Maesschalck, who has previously helped another Napoli star Dries Mertens.
The forward has scored twice in eight league appearances for Napoli this season.
