Inter midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu is set to be on the sidelines for two or three weeks as he recovers from a hamstring sprain that he picked up today.
This according to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, who report that the 28-year-old should miss the matches with the Turkish national team during the international break while is availability for the Nerazzurri’s Serie A match against Roma after the break is also in doubt.
Tests from earlier today found a hamstring sprain to Calhanoglu, and there is no doubt that he will not be called up for Sunday’s Serie A clash with Udinese, whilst Sky also report that he is also very likely to miss both of Turkey’s Nations League matches during the break.
The initial feeling is that the Turk should take 2-3 weeks to be fit again, although he will be assessed again next week to provide a better sense of how long he should be out for.
Therefore, Inter’s first match back from the break, against Roma on October 1, could also be too early for Calhanoglu to return in.
