“The instrumental tests carried out on Victor Osimhen at the end of the Inter-Napoli match revealed multiple displaced fractures of the orbit and of the left cheekbone.
The player will undergo surgery in the next few days and will remain under observation at the Niguarda hospital in Milan tonight”
With just seven weeks until the start of the Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon, top officials of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) are keen to know whether Osimhen will be fit for the continental showpiece event.
“It’s a major concern but we cannot comment about Osimhen until we hear from the club,” an NFF official told BBC Sport Africa.
“Hopefully there will be some positive news after his surgery.”
