Petagna aims to return against Crotone

Napoli forward Andrea Petagna reportedly aims for a return from injury against Crotone after the international break.

Il Mattino reports the attacker, who partially trained with the rest of the group yesterday, hopes to be back for the match on April 4.

The 25-year-old has played 20 Serie A games since his move to the Partenopei last summer, contributing four goals and three assists in the process.

But he suffered a muscle injury in the right thigh during training on February 16 and has missed six games since appearing in the 1-0 win over Juventus three days earlier.

Napoli climbed to fifth in Serie A after a 2-0 win over Roma last time and stretched their run to three consecutive wins, having only lost once in their last seven League games.
