Osimhen steps up recovery ahead Atalanta clash


Victor Osimhen is set to recover in time for Napoli’s Serie A home clash against Atalanta this weekend, DAILY POST reports.

Nigeria didn’t feature in Napoli’s 1-1 draw with Inter Milan before the international break due to fitness concerns.

Osimhen also pulled out of Nigeria’s squad for the friendlies against Ghana and Mali in a bid to regain full fitness.

The 25-year-old was involved in partial team training at Napoli’s Konami Training Centre on Wednesday.

The forward is expected to be named in the Partenopei’s squad for the game.

Osimhen has scored 11 goals in 17 league appearances for the reigning Serie A champions this season.

Napoli will host Atalanta at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium on Saturday.
