Sky Italia via MilanNews.it are reporting that AC Milan left winger Rafael Leao has picked up an injury over the international break with the Portugal U21 side against the Netherlands when he needed to be subbed off after just 37 minutes. The attacked is expected to undergo scans to understand the extent of his injury and will likely not be available for Milan's crunch tie this weekend against Napoli on the road.

MilanLive.it are reporting that Leao posted on Instagram after the game and played off the injury as a minor one. A better update an assessment of the situation could arrive later today ahead of the trip to Naples as that would leave just Ante Rebic as the winger for the left hand side.

MilanNews.it are meanwhile reporting that he picked up an injury to his hamstring muscle in his right thigh. He is expected to undertake a follow up evaluation after 10 days thus will miss three vital games in the coming week.
