Osimhen sustained a thigh injury on international duty and is expected to be sidelined for few weeks.

The Nigeria international is expected to miss Serie A champions league fixtures against Hellas Verona and AC Milan as well as the UEFA Champions League clash against AC Milan.

Garcia claimed he must find a solution in Osimhen’s absence.

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

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

The 24-year-old played a crucial role in Napoli’s Scudetto success last season.

The striker scored 26 goals in 32 league appearances for the Partenopei.

The former Lille star also registered five more goals in the UEFA Champions League.

Osimhen has scored six goals in 10 appearances across all competitions for the Partenopei this season.

Garcia will be banking on Giacomo Raspadori and Giovanni Simeone for goals in the absence of the powerful forward.

Napoli suffered consecutive defeats to Real Madrid and Fiorentina before the international break.
