Victor Osimhen

Napoli striker, Victor Osimhen, is training on his own ahead of their Europa League fixture against Leicester City on Thursday.

The Super Eagles star picked up an injury during their 2-1 win over Juventus on Sunday.

Napoli are now sweating on Osimhen’s fitness, ahead of their trip to the King Power Stadium.

“Napoli were back at the Konami Training Centre on Monday morning following their win over Juventus on Saturday,” read part of the statement on the club’s official website.

“Next up for the Azzurri is their Europa League group stage opener away at Leicester City on Thursday [21:00 CEST kick-off].

“At the training ground, the squad kicked off the session with a practice game using smaller goals, followed by group tactical work. Those who weren’t involved from the start in the defeat of Juventus then got stuck into a mini-match.

“Dries Mertens and Faouzi Ghoulam trained with the group for the full session, while Diego Demme and Victor [Osimhen] had individual sessions outside.

“Stanislav Lobotka received treatment and did individual work outside, with Lorenzo Insigne training in the gym after he picked up a knock on Saturday.”
