Napoli Sporting Director Cristiano Giuntoli has revealed Nigerian star Victor Osimhen will not be in action for the club until 2021.

Osimhen dislocated his shoulder while on international duty with Nigeria last month and has not played for the Serie A side since then.

“Osimhen is still not well, we are waiting for him at the beginning of 2021,” Guintoli told

”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 ”.

Osimhen who has scored twice for the Italian Blues, travelled to Belgium to continue his rehabilitation under the care of Belgium national team physio Lieven Maesschalck.
