“Everybody is here. Timothy Weah who returns from injury, does a week of
test, just like Yusuf Yazici who is in the evaluation phase after his return,”Galtier told Lille’s official website on Wednesday.

“The only player missing is Victor Osimhen, who recently lost his father.
“At this period, he needs to be close to his family. So we have decided with the club to allow him stay with his family for the funeral.

” He is therefore absent
for several days. I give him, like everyone at the club, my total support
in this difficult time. ”

The 21-year-old scored 18 goals and provided six assists in 31 appearances across all competitions for Lille last season.
