According to IlBianconero, the player’s medical tests detected a first-degree muscular injury in the left hamstring.

While the Bosnian’s campaign isn’t necessarily over, the source reveals he’ll be out of action for at least three weeks.

Therefore, a return against the Bianconeri in the domestic cup final is practically impossible. This encounter will take place at the Stadio Olimpico in Roma on Wednesday the 15th of May.

This season, the former Arsenal and Schalke man has made 42 appearances across all competitions, contributing with a single goal and an assist.
