According to reports, Juventus are considering the possibility of including Gonzalo Higuain in the squad to face Napoli on Friday as a substitute.
Reports from Gazzetta dello Sport suggest that Juventus will be notified if Higuain can make a place on the bench for the Napoli tie in the next few hours
This is coming after the Argentine striker went under the knife due to a broken left hand two days ago, and is expected to make full recovery in 2 to 3 weeks according to estimates.
It is believed that the striker’s hand is in a brace, although the rule states that he is eligible to play with one.
Meanwhile, amid the growing belief that he could feature for Juventus against Napoli on Friday, the paper has warned that his eligibility for the game will boil down to his pain threshold.
