Osimhen out is a big loss for the team – Garcia

The Partenopei are getting ready for a busy month of fixtures, and Rudi Garcia, the coach of Napoli, has acknowledged that Victor Osimhen would be dearly missed.

Due to a medium-grade biceps femoris lesion in his right thigh, the 24-year-old will be sidelined from Napoli’s forthcoming matches against Hellas Verona, Union Berlin, and AC Milan. The injury occurred while he was on international duty with Nigeria.

Garcia thinks his side’s prospects of winning again may be harmed by the absence of his top goal scorer, despite the fact that his squad has other options in attack.

Garcia is under fire as a result of the Serie A champions’ bad run, which included successive losses to Real Madrid and Fiorentina before the international break. The team has only won four league games this season and has only won four games overall.

Speaking with La Gazzetta dello Sport, Garcia revealed, “We need all our players fit and ready to play and Osimhen out is a big loss for the team.”

“He is an important player to the team and we must find a solution in his absence.”

Osimhen has played 111 games while wearing a Napoli jersey, scoring 65 goals overall and contributing 15 assists.

In the meantime, the Nigerian is willing to join Real Madrid, according to renowned transfer analyst Ekrem Konur.

The summer of 2025 will see Osimhen’s Napoli contract expire.

In order to avoid losing him for nothing in 2025, the Serie A winners will be obliged to sell if he doesn’t sign a new contract in January.

Osimhen has been linked with several of Europe’s elite teams, and Konur claims the Eagles striker might be open to a transfer to Real Madrid in light of recent developments at Napoli that have unnerved him.

Karim Benzema, who is currently playing for Al-Ittihad, has still not been replaced by a new star player by Real Madrid.

Napoli has 14 points after eight games, placing them fifth in the Serie A standings.
