Osimhen improves after his head trauma but will not be against Granada

Napoli's most expensive signing underwent tests on Tuesday that did not reveal serious head injuries, but must rest for a few days.


Nigerian forward Victor Osimhen, the most expensive signing in Naples' history, continues to improve in his recovery after the head trauma suffered last Saturday while visiting Atalanta, but will miss the return leg of the Europa League round of 32 this Thursday against Granada.

Osimhen, paid seventy million euros to Lille in the last summer market, underwent tests on Tuesday that did not reveal serious head injuries, but Naples doctors ordered a few days off before returning to training, he reported the Neapolitan club in an official note.

The Nigerian, who started last Thursday in the duel lost 0-2 by Naples in the Granada field, will be out for the return, while coach Gennaro Gattuso was able to work this Tuesday with Belgian Dries Mertens again at provision.

"The Colombian David Ospina did a personalized work in the field. (The Albanian Elseid) Hysaj and (the German Diego) Demme partially worked with the group. (The Greek Kostas) Manolas underwent therapies and did personalized work in the field and in the gym, "Naples reported in its statement.

In addition, the Mexican Hirving Lozano continued to work on the sidelines after his muscle injury suffered ten days ago in the game against Juventus.
