Napoli left-back Faouzi Ghoulam underwent surgery on his knee on Wednesday, the Serie A club has confirmed.

Ghoulam made just 11 league appearances last term before tearing an anterior cruciate ligament in November 2017, finally returning to training in February.

However, the full-back then fractured his knee cap in training, keeping him out until May, although he did appear in Napoli's squad for its final three fixtures.

And the 27-year-old has now undergone a minor procedure at the Villa Stuart medical facility in Rome and will be monitored over the coming week, according to a statement on Napoli's official website.
