Nigeria U20 striker Osimhen was due to have made his Bundesliga debut this month after he signed a professional contract with Wolfsburg soon after turning 18 last month.
However, he suffered a knee injury, which his representatives had first downplayed.
More recent reports suggest the situation is a lot more serious.
Osimhen went under the knife again on Wednesday.
“Victor Osimhen has had another procedure on his knee today (Wednesday) and will be out for a few weeks,” a top source in Germany told AfricanFootball.com
“He will then start a rehabilitation programme and slowly be brought back towards the first squad.”
Osimhen has signed a contract for three and a half years earlier this month.
