Inter Milan midfielder Stefano Sensi has suffered a strain in the quadriceps muscles of his left thigh.

This according to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, via FCInterNews, who report that the 28-year-old underwent medical tests today which revealed the presence of the muscle problem for him.

Injuries have become an unfortunate theme for Sensi during the Italian international’s time as an Inter player.

The former Sassuolo midfielder has already had one minor muscle problem this season. It kept him out of the Nerazzurri’s win over Fiorentina prior to the international break.

Last season at Monza, Sensi had one notable injury, an ankle problem. However, the Italian managed to appear in the majority of the Brianzoli’s matches.

The fact that Sensi had managed a decent fitness record on loan with Monza gave Inter some hope when reintegrating the 28-year-old into the squad as a depth option in midfield over the summer.

However, early signs this season have not been positive.

Inter Midfielder Stefano Sensi Suffers Thigh Strain

Sensi did not travel with Inter’s squad to San Sebastian for their Champions League group stage opener against Real Sociedad this evening.

It was always clear that that would be the case, however.

The 28-year-old is not a part of the Nerazzurri’s squad list for the competition.

However, Sensi has stayed behind and continued to work in training.

And it was in training that the midfielder picked up another injury.

According to Sky, Sensi underwent medical tests earlier today after feeling some discomfort in his thigh.

And the assessments revealed a strain in the midfielder’s left thigh.

It is not clear how serious the injury is, or what the recovery timeline will be.

Whilst Sensi is not part of Inter’s squad list in the Champions League, he can play in Serie A. However, the midfielder may miss one or more matches with his most recent injury.
