Napoli’s €35m man Alex Meret is reportedly facing another month on the sidelines with an arm injury.
According to La Repubblica, Meret continues to feel pain in his left arm and has yet to recover sensitivity in his thumb.
The newspaper explains ‘a secret consultation’ had excluded any more serious problems but warns he is still a month away from returning to full fitness.
The 21-year-old initially picked up the injury during preseason but could make his comeback against former club Udinese on October 20.
