Victor Osimhen has been diagnosed with a fractured eye socket and cheekbone and will undergo surgery in Milan after a clash of heads with Inter defender Milan Skriniar.

Napoli disclosed this in a statement on their Twitter handle.

Following the clash of heads, Osimhen was visibly swollen around the left eye and cheekbone, and was able to walk off the pitch, albeit clearly dazed.

He was taken to the San Raffaele hospital for tests, which showed multiple displaced fractures of the left cheekbone and orbital bone.

And giving update on the injury, Napoli wrote:”Medical tests on Victor Osimhen after Napoli’s clash with Inter showed that the player has sustained a fractured eye socket and cheekbone.

“The forward will undergo surgery in the next few days and will remain under observation in hospital in Milan overnight.”

Initial reports suggest that Osimhen could be out of action for at least a month.

It is devastating news, especially as Osimhen is also set to leave Napoli in January to play for Nigeria in the Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

He is their top scorer this season with five Serie A goals and four in the Europa League.
