Zirkzee could need surgery

Parma have announced Joshua Zirkzee might need an operation and will not be available for the match against Benevento.

The Ducali confirmed Yann Karamoh, Simon Sohm and the Bayern Munich loanee will not be available for the next game in Serie A.

“Yann Karamoh is not available due to a sprained right ankle,” the club wrote in a statement.

“Simon Sohm has returned from his commitments with the national team with a sprained right ankle and, therefore, will not be available.

“The tests carried out on the athlete Joshua Zirkzee revealed an external ligament injury with a high-grade injury to the lateral collateral ligament.

“The possible surgical solution will be evaluated in agreement with the medical staff at Bayern Munich.”

Zirkzee has played four times in Serie A since his move to the Gialloblu in January and the 19-year-old has yet to score for Parma.
