Atalanta attacker Franco Brienza will decide over the next few days whether or not to have shoulder surgery.
The 34-year-old has been out for the past two weeks with the injury, and Corriere dello Sport have claimed that the former Italy international will speak with doctors later this week to discuss the implications of going under the knife.
The veteran forward has been plagued by shoulder troubles this term, and as such has only started 12 times for La Dea.
