Corriere dello Sport are reporting that Lazio forward Miroslav Klose faces around 15 days out on the sidelines.
The German missed the Biancocelesti’s weekend win over Sampdoria with what is said to be a thigh injury.
Now, he has flown to Munich in order to undergo tests and consultation with his preferred doctors.
Should the reports about the length of time he will be out for be accurate, Klose will miss Lazio’s next two Serie A matches against Napoli and Torino as they continue their chase for a Europa League place.
He is expected to return in time for Edy Reja’s team’s home game with Livorno on 27th April.
