Atalanta forward Guido Marilungo has successfully undergone knee surgery in Barcelona today.
The 23-year-old ruptured his cruciate ligament in the Coppa Italia match against Cesena last week, and has had the injury operated on this afternoon in Spain.
This is the second time the Italy Under-21 international has suffered a serious knee injury in 12 months, having suffered the same fate in March this year.
The former Sampdoria man will miss the rest of the season.
