Udinese striker Antonio Di Natale is reportedly flying to Spain for specialist treatment on his ankle injury.
The Serie A Capocannoniere has been suffering from an ankle problem for over a week and picked up a knock during the 2-1 defeat to Roma.
Sky Sport Italia claim Di Natale will fly out to Barcelona tomorrow for an appointment with a specialist.
It means it will be very difficult to see the hitman in action this weekend against Napoli at the Stadio San Paolo.
This is a huge blow for the Friulani, who are also unlikely to have Alexis Sanchez back from his injury.
