Napoli star Jesper Lindstrom will reportedly make his return to action for the big weekend clash against Inter Milan.
The 23-year missed Walter Mazzarri’s re-debut against Atalanta due to a shin injury. He also had to skip the midweek trip to Spain for the Champions League showdown against Real Madrid.
In his absence, the Partenopei prevailed over La Dea in Bergamo last weekend, but succumbed at the hands of Los Merengues by four goals to two.
But according to FcInterNews, Lindstrom has now recovered from his injury and participated in the entire training session on Friday.
Therefore, the source expects the Dane to earn a call-up from Mazzarri for the top Serie A showdown.
The reigning Italian champions will host the league leaders at the Maradona Stadium on Sunday night.
Lindstrom joined Napoli in the summer after making a name for himself during his two-year spell at Eintracht Frankfurt.

The Southern Italian giants splashed 28 million euros to secure his services. He can either play as an attacking midfielder or a winger.
However, the Denmark international is yet to make an impact in Italian football.
He has made nine appearances for Napoli across all competitions, but only one as a starter. He has yet to score a goal or provide an assist for a teammate.
On another note, the source reveals that Mathias Olivera is still undergoing therapy after suffering an injury against Atalanta last weekend. Napoli’s other left-back Mario Rui continues to work separately in the gym.
In recent matches, former Inter defender Juan Jesus has been deployed as an emergency left-back.
