Lille striker Timothy Weah could be in line to make his comeback from injury when they play Olympique Marseille in a fortnight.
The former Paris St Germain striker joined Lille in June last year and has struggled to make an impact at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy. He joined Lille in a £10 million deal and has played a paltry two matches.
In a press conference on Monday, the club's coach Christophe Galtier said that he expects the American forward to be back in two weeks time.
“I think he could come back for Lille-Marseille game. He hasn't played for five and a half months. The winter break means that we will have every one fresh and ready when the league resumes for the second leg, "he said.
Weah is the son of African football legend George Weah but chose to represent the United States on the international stage. He suffered a hamstring injury barely two months since joining his new home and has been sidelined for five and a half months.
