UCL: Napoli Sweating Over Osimhen Fitness Ahead Barcelona Clash

Serie A champions, Napoli are sweating on the fitness of Victor Osimhen ahead of their UEFA Champions League clash against Barcelona.

Osimhen reportedly lost between 3 to 4 kilograms during the competition hosted by Cote d’Ivoire.

The weight loss has put his readiness for the game against Barcelona in doubt.

The 25-year-old is also yet to fully recover for the rigours of playing seven games within the space of one month in a difficult weather condition in Cote d’Ivoire.

With uncertainty looming over the forward’s availability, Napoli manager Luciano Spalletti may need to consider alternatives such as Giovanni Simeone or Giacomo Raspadori to fill the void.

Napoli will host Barcelona at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium, on Tuesday, February 21.
