Victor Osimhen has been included in Napoli’s 22-man traveling squad to face Bologna in the Serie A on Monday.
The squad was published on Napoli’s verified Twitter handle on Sunday.
Osimhen has been out of action for Napoli after suffering a facial injury, during a league clash against Inter Milan back in November last year.
The 23-year-old had to be substituted and rushed to hospital following a head collision with Inter’s Milan Skriniar.
He underwent surgery and was ruled out for three months but made a remarkable recovery, which saw him included in the Super Eagles’ 28-man squad for the AFCON 2021.
However, he tested positive for coronavirus and had to be dropped by interim coach Austine Eguavoen.
And after recovering from COVID-19, he is now set to return to action for Napoli on Monday.
The former Lille star, who has scored five goals in 11 league games this season, has missed Napoli’s last 11 games since his injury.
Napoli are currently in third place on 43 points, seven points behind leaders Inter Milan in the league standing.
