Napoli revealed good news earlier today when they announced attacker Khvicha Kvaratskhelia is available after missing last weekend’s clash against Salernitana.

The 21 year-old missed the Partenopei’s last two matches, including their Coppa Italia defeat to Cremonese, after falling ill with influenza.

After an eight day layoff, the attacker finally returned to training on Wednesday and will be fully available for Sunday evening’s league showdown in Campania against Roma.

Barring any setbacks, manager Luciano Spalletti is widely expected to start Kvaratskhelia in attack along with Victor Osimhen and Matteo Politano when they host Jose Mourinho’s men at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.
