Obi who has made 12 Serie A appearances (three starts and nine substitute appearances) this season for eight placed Torino, sustained the injury in the club's 4-0 win over Pisa in the Coppa Italia on the 2nd of December. He was replaced after 15 minutes of the match.

But the 25 year old midfielder joined his teammates in training under the guidance of Sinisa Mihajlovic at the Sisport and could be in line for a return in a competitive match when Torino play away to Sassuolo on the 8th of January.
