Napoli head coach Rudi Garcia expects Victor Osimhen back in action at the end of the upcoming international break.

Osimhen picked up an injury during Nigeria’s friendly against Saudi Arabia last month.

The 24-year-old returned to Naples on Wednesday after spending time in Nigeria to take care of family issues.

The forward was in the stands to watch the Serie A champions UEFA Champions League clash against Union Berlin last night.

Garcia however said Osimhen will be ready to face Atalanta at the Estadio Diego Armando Maradona on Sunday, November 25.

“We are working to have Victor ready for the game against Atalanta,”Garcia was quoted by Football Italia.

The striker has scored six goals in 10 games across all competitions for Napoli this season.

Osimhen will miss Nigeria’s 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Lesotho and Zimbabwe due to injury.
