Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen will undergo surgery on Tuesday, November 23, 2021, after he badly injured his cheekbone and eye socket in Napoli’s 3-2 defeat by Inter Milan on Sunday.

He was substituted after a clash of heads with Inter Milan's Skriniar in the 52nd minute of the game.

Napoli took to Twitter to confirm the extent of the injury, adding that the forward “will undergo surgery today in Naples”.

“Osimhen will return to Naples in the evening (Monday evening), will remain under observation and will be operated tomorrow (today) by Gianpaolo Tartaro assisted by the Health Manager of the club Raffaele Canonico,” Napoli tweeted.
