According to a report from Spanish publication Diario Sport, Nigerian international Victor Osimhen is expected to be available for Napoli’s round of 16 UEFA Champions League clash against Barcelona.

Osimhen, who recently returned to his Italian club after representing Nigeria in the Africa Cup of Nations, missed Napoli’s last match due to fatigue.

However, fresh insights into his well-being suggest that he could feature in the upcoming encounter, albeit for a limited amount of playing time.

The Africa Cup of Nations took a toll on Osimhen, with the striker experiencing stomach pains prior to the semi-final against South Africa.

Despite this setback, he played a crucial role in helping Nigeria reach the tournament’s final.

Although he only scored one goal throughout the competition, his performances were instrumental in Nigeria’s success.

Napoli, currently facing a challenging season, sees Osimhen as their great hope.

The team has struggled in Serie A and suffered disappointing defeats in the Coppa Italia and Super Cup.

With the Champions League being their last opportunity for success, Osimhen’s return is eagerly anticipated.

Having played four Champions League games this season, Osimhen has already made an impact for Napoli, scoring a goal and providing an assist.

His potential availability for the match against Barcelona is a positive development for the team, even if he can only play for a limited duration.

As the encounter draws near, fans and supporters eagerly await Osimhen’s reunion with the San Paolo stadium.

It remains to be seen what version of the striker will take the field, given the physical toll of the Africa Cup of Nations.

Nevertheless, his presence is sure to boost Napoli’s chances in this crucial Champions League clash.
