Monza striker Gianluca Caprari will undergo knee surgery in Barcelona following an anterior cruciate ligament injury.
Caprari sustained a knee injury during Monza’s 1-1 draw against Lecce last week. The Brianzoli have now confirmed that Caprari suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury, which must be treated with surgery.
The club said Caprari will go under the knife in Barcelona in an operation conducted by doctor Ramon Cugat.
The Catalan doctor is a knee specialist having performed similar surgeries on other players in the past, including Barcelona’s Ansu Fati, Milan‘s Mateo Musacchio, Inter‘s Matias Vecino and Sassuolo‘s Jeremie Boga.
Caprari is expected to remain out of action for several months and Monza will likely reveal his recovery time after the surgery which will be carried out over the next few days.
Caprari, 30, joined Monza from Hellas Verona in the summer of 2022 and has scored six goals in 43 appearances with the Brianzoli.
He played his first and only game with Italy in June 2022 against Germany.
