Mexican international Hirving Lozano is in doubt for Napoli’s next Serie A game against Atalanta as he suffered muscle fatigue, the club confirmed via a statement.
He did not train with the squad today following a personalized plan and he’ll be re-evaluated tomorrow. The game is scheduled for Saturday afternoon.
Lozano has scored four goals in 30 matches across all competitions this season but his last goal came before the World Cup break in November against Empoli.
Despite those numbers, he’s one of the most important players for Luciano Spalletti’s side. He’s been a starter in six of the last seven Napoli’s Serie A games and he has provided an assist for Victor Osimhen during the 2-0 win away against Eintracht Frankfurt in Champions League.
If he’ll miss the Atalanta clash, one between Matteo Politano and Elif Elmas will take his place as Giacomo Raspadori is still out for a muscle injury and that will rule him out until the international break.
Victor Osimhen missed today’s training too but as confirmed by the club, he had an authorized permission.
