S’Eagles striker, Victor Osimhen’s agent, William D’Avila expects the Nigeria international to be involved in some capacity when Napoli take on AS Roma in the Serie A on November 29.

  The striker missed Napoli’s home loss to AC Milan last weekend due to an injury he picked up during the crazy 4-4 draw with Sierra Leone twelve days ago and is not in the reckoning to face Rijeka in the Europa League on Thursday despite serving out a one-game ban.

  D’Avila expects his client to return to full training in the coming days before the visit of an in-form Roma side who have not lost since the opening day at Hellas Verona.

  Speaking to Radio Kiss Kiss via Tuttosport, D’Avila said “the boy is very well, we hope to see him back on the pitch as soon as possible: in a few days we will see him train again with rest of the team.

  “His adaptation phase is over, sorry for the injury that stopped him in a delicate period of the season”.

  He added “I hope that with the Giallorossi, Victor can at least be on the bench. If he doesn’t hurt he can do it – more than twenty goals this season!”

  In eight appearances across all competitions for Napoli so far this season, the most expensive African-born player in history has scored two goals.
